what does "gone to press with an extra"mean? The public has less faith in official pronouncements than either officials or reporters; to the waiting nation, Kilduff was merely confirming an accepted fact. On the strength of the priest's statement the Harvard Crimson had gone to press with an extra, and thousands of flags, including the one that Lady Bird glimpsed, had already plummeted when Kilduff faced his flock of correspondents in classroom 101-102 and struggled for the hardest words he would ever speak, unaware that a gentle, dumpy little man in a black habit, perched on the front seat of a church Galaxie with an oval "BUILT-IN TEXAS BY TEXANS" sign, had already said, "He's dead, all right."
