333 Line

The 333 Line is a feature of Salina Journal's editorial page. People can telephone their comments which are recorded by automation. Some of these comments appear, verbatim, on the paper's editorial page. In 2004 the Salina Public Library conducted a poll[5] that suggests that the 333 line is a controversial subject for some members of the community.
