To the editor:
Are you a typical middle-class worker and homeowner in Lawrence, Kan.? If you are, then you are carrying an increasingly heavy burden for America. Are you worried about how to save the middle-class dreams for your children and grandchildren? Well, forget it. It's too late.
You will be fortunate if you can save yourself. If you are middle class, you are an endangered species. You have paid for everything that America has done. Both the state and country will turn to you to pay the impossible debt the country owes. Those at the top will pay nothing because they make the laws, that 2 percent of America which owns the Congress. Those at the bottom will pay nothing because it's still impossible to get blood from a turnip.
