Fourth of July fireworks returning to downtown Lawrence

The stadium and Campanille Hill were great. It's never been much good since the move. We liked the lake better than downtown.

Obama campaign organization daunting to challengers

I take issue with one word in this Saturday Column. It is the word "massive" in the 12th paragraph. Obama's win was not all that massive. He received only 53% of the popular vote. Both in the primaries and general election, Obama's victory was largely a technical and lucky one. In the primaries he won by on-the-ground organization in the caucus states which Hillary did not contest in an adquate way. In the general election Obama was "lucky" that the stock market crashed and that McCain's response was inadequate. Obama may not continue to be so lucky as domestic and international events unfold. As Americans, of course, we hope that his luck continues, that the natural economic forces restore the economy and that foreign events trend our way. We must also hope that whatever Obama does is effective in restoring things soon. We must especially hope that he does not prolong bad news for political benefit and timing relative to the 2010 election. How would a similarly talented and organized Republican candidate and party approach things? What would Reagan do? These are the questions to ponder with the luxury of a little time and as we wait to see how things unfold.
