WWW. "When I met with Mr. Chung today, I had trouble understanding him, but he seems upset about a game his son plays with his classmates at recess. When they play Bonanza, he is always made to play a servant. I told Mr. Chung that I was sorry that he was unhappy with that, but here in America we don't keep our children from playing the games they wish to play. When that didn't seem to satisfy him, I suggested he meet with the Superintendant [sic]."--Entry in principal's notebook, circa February 1963, found at a Maryland flea market in 2006

WWW is a weekly series on Blog About Town. Here is last week's installment.
