WEEI Boston this afternoon broadcast the tale of Fletcher of Austin,
Texas, inventing the hamburger sandwich in the 1880s.  It was so
popular, the Athenian being interviewed said, that the citizens of
the town  funded Fletcher, and sent him to the St. Louis World's
Fair.  WEEI is affiliated with CBS, but I don't know if this item
came from the network.
