Letter: Tour suggestions

October 22, 2013


To the editor:

With regard to the Journal-World report that Republican legislators like Susan Wagle would like to “start touring universities this week in preparation for the 2014 session,” I would like to suggest that their Kansas University tour begin at Memorial Stadium, to see if additional funding can revive our dying football program, and then end at Pioneer Cemetery on Mount Oread, to see if further defunding can keep the Ghosts of Professors Past from rising from their unhappy graves at Halloween to remind us of days gone by, when KU prided itself as Harvard on the Kaw.

Our biggest funding priority in your eyes is reviving a football program? I sincerely hope this letter was intended as satire, otherwise it's just sad.

What can Susan Wagle discover? NOT much.

This is a taxpayer funded photo op. Susan Wagle needs to the replaced. She is not a republican but a member of the ALEC Right Wing Party.

Yes, Mr. Heckler, it was meant to be satirical. I've been in Lawrence since 1969, and I have yet to attend a KU football game.

Then you probably also realize that "Harvard on the KU" is a overly generous self-description.
