[Ads-l] Request help verifying 1959 quotation from journalist Edward R. Murrow.

According to a string of messages in March, you can avoid receiving messages in garbled form by sending the following email (no subject line needed) to listserv at listserv.uga.edu<mailto:listserv at listserv.uga.edu>:

SET ADS-L FULLHDR

Or, if you prefer to receive your emails with an "[ADS-L]" flag in the subject line, you can instead send this email to that address, and it should fix the garbling:

SET ADS-L SUBJECTHDR

In either case, be sure to email to the listserv at listserv.uga.edu<mailto:listserv at listserv.uga.edu> address and not the address we use to post.

My earlier post was as follows:

A Documentary History of the United States, https://books.google.com/books?id=GEun0OdclpQC&pg=PT243&lpg=PT243&dq=%22turns+their+proceedings+into+a+circus%22&source=bl&ots=6qYPoqe_bR&sig=WhVTbFhNhwr4gvsf84mgRvcqYoM&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiIw6io__LMAhWCbB4KHUecCJAQ6AEIPDAG#v=onepage&q=%22turns%20their%20proceedings%20into%20a%20circus%22&f=false, says that this is from Murrow's 1959 "Guildhall Speech on "Television and Politics"" and gives fairly full text, including the paragraph in question.  I don't know how authoritative this source is.

Dear John,

I'm sorry but I can't decipher the scrambled letters.
