“A little about Quantrill’s Raid, and about the rock chalk chant, I think. The Jayhawk term used to be negative, so I think it’s interesting that now it’s a positive mascot.”
“More recently, one of my favorite directors worked here — Ang Lee with ‘Ride with the Devil.’ And ‘Carnival of Souls is another famous movie here. A lot of it was shot on Mass. Street.”
“I know it burned. And about the Kaw Valley Pickers in the 1970s — the state used to be more ‘hippy’ and liberal than it is now.”
“Nothing, I’m not from here.”
