KSU slackers

Along the banks of the Kansas River in Manhattan, home of Kansas State University, is an interesting sight. There, amid the lush green foliage, are the giant white letters "KS". Now, not a rocket scientist myself, but I'm inclined to think that the hillside initials are incomplete. Just where is the "U" that should follow the "S"? Did the artists run out of rocks or white paint? Perhaps the semester ended before they could finish? Or, as my friend Jim at The Shaggy Dog suggests, maybe they're just slackers.

As a graduate of the rival University of Kansas, I like the "slacker" explanation.

Thanks, Jim!
