THE WEEK WHEN KANSAS CITY MOURNED ADELE HALL AND 7 HOMICIDE VICTIMS!!!
Death was no stranger in Kansas City this week.
A spate of 7 homicides rocked Kansas City as questions about crime-fighting strategy from local politicos and authorities started to surface from the community.
Meanwhile . . .
Kansas City high society lost one of their matriarchs.
Now, TKC took a bit of heat for employing Adele Hall's death as a satirical device for social commentary even though it's doubtful that any of her relatives or loved ones read this blog.
In the aftermath, a few of you d-bags who weren't related to the lady threw a hissy fit and quickly wished death my way in a typically classy, misinformed and mostly wrongheaded Internets move.
More importantly . . .
TKC'S MOM THREW HER SHOE AT YOUR (SOMEWHAT) FEARLESS LEADER BECAUSE SHE HAD WON A SCHOLARSHIP FROM ADELE HALL DURING HER HIGH SCHOOL YEARS AND APPARENTLY LOVED THE OLD BROAD!!!
Because I'm quicker than I look and this basement is always kinda dark, the shoe didn't connect.
But TKC accepts the criticism.
Still, I stand by my point that upper-class death in Kansas City at a ripe-old age is lovingly eulogized while denizens of the urban core are killed by the hundreds year after year and mostly remain nameless numbers rattled off by mainstream media without much memorial consideration.
If I ever come into contact with Hall's family (doubtful), I probably owe them an apology for the clumsy rhetorical tactic employed on this dumb-ass blog but I'd advise the rest of you d-bags with no direct connection not to hold your breath.
Nevertheless . . .
This was a week of tragedy in Kansas City as death reached out to touch Kansas City's upper-class and urban core alike . . .
