Remember and rethink. Area government leaders are expected to do a bit of both following an attack at a Missouri city hall on Thursday that left six people dead. “I think we’re probably going to take an additional look at our security,” Lawrence City Manager David Corliss said Friday. “I expect municipal governments are really going to take a moment to think about those who lost their lives, and I expect we’ll look to see if there is anything more that we need to do.”

Investigative journalist Seymour Hersh, the recipient of the 2008 William Allen White national citation, speaks Friday at KU. Journalist calls for media vigilance
February 9, 2008 in print edition on 1B
Famed investigative journalist Seymour Hersh told a Kansas University crowd Friday that there was good news and bad news about George W. Bush’s term in office. Hersh’s bad news came first: “There are 347 days more days in the reign of King George II,” he said. “The good news is every morning when we wake up there will be one less day.” Those sorts of remarks, fiercely critical of the current administration and sprinkled with memories of reporting the My Lai and Abu Ghraib military scandals, filled Hersh’s 40-minute speech at KU’s Woodruff Auditorium before he received the 2008 William Allen White national citation.

While the backcourt defense wasn’t in lockdown mode against Baylor, the Jayhawk’s ballhandlers were able to get it going on the offensive end when need be Saturday night, ousting its scrappy visitors 100-90 in Allen Fieldhouse. Darrell Arthur led KU with 23 points, including 16 in the second half, as KU went without a three-pointer made for the first time this season. In all, five Jayhawks scored in double figures. Russell Robinson was 14-of-15 from the free throw line en route to scoring 22, while Sherron Collins scored 17 and dished four assists.
