Letter to the editor: Thanks to Carrier
To the editor:
Reading the weather reports this week made me think it is a good time to give a shout out to Willis Carrier (1876-1950). Although he is no longer around to hear the accolade, I do sing his praises on these toasty summer days for having invented the air conditioner.
Kansas’s home-grown fruit and veggies are even more mouth-watering when consumed inside my climate-controlled home looking out on the sweltering fields.
As noted by others, this cool engineer was a Presbyterian, Republican and avid golfer. But then again, no one is perfect.
