Negative contribution
April 1, 2001
J-W Editorials Now that members of the Kansas House have made their point, maybe they can turn their attention to the serious issues of public school funding. Oh, those crazy legislators. Gov.

The first time I saw television was in 1948, in Salt Lake City, but I don’t think television had come to the city as a whole. I looked through a store window, and on a tiny TV set the Republican convention was on, and Earl Warren was in view. So we had no television in Salt Lake City, and when we moved to Denver in ‘49 television also hadn’t come there. So it was here in Lawrence, in ‘51 or ‘52 that we had our first television set. I remember especially the World Series, and seeing the one channel, 4. It was pretty primitive. We watched the results of the ‘52 election, despairingly, because our man didn’t win.
