TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY STAYS HOME FOR SNAKEBIT SUSAN G. KOMEN RACE FOR THE CURE!!!
In Kansas City the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure seems to have been irreparably damaged in the aftermath of abortion debate controversy.
And now . . .
TKC TIPSTERS REPORT SPARSE ATTENDANCE FOR THE KANSAS CITY SUSAN G. KOMEN RACE FOR THE CURE!!!
Here's the tip . . .
"TKC, just wanted you to know that there was almost NOBODY at the Komen race this morning. Organizers are trying to get out the word that there were 20 thousand people in attendance but the crowd was nowhere near that size and even that number is noticeably declining."
Even better . . .
TOP ECHELON TKC TIPSTERS HAVE A PRELIMINARY LOOK AT DECLINING KANSAS CITY RACE FOR THE CURE ATTENDANCE!!!
Here it is:
In 2011, organizers reported KC Race For The Cure attendance @ 30K
After An Abortion Sponsorship Debate, Attendance Was Tagged @ 25K for 2012
And today organizers are scrambling to get the word out that attendance was 20K despite the crowd being noticeably smaller and participants disputing that number
DO THE MATH . . . EVEN ACCORDING TO CONSERVATIVE ATTENDANCE NUMBERS THE KANSAS CITY SUSAN G. KOMEN RACE FOR THE CURE HAS DECLINED BY AT LEAST 30 PERCENT IN THE PAST FEW YEARS!!!
The Kansas City drop-off in attendance follows a national trend.
To wit . . .
A PR BLUNDER AMID THE ABORTION DEBATE HAS ESSENTIALLY KILLED THE SUSAN G. KOMEN RACE FOR THE CURE IN KANSAS CITY!!!
The lesson: Heated discourse is captivating at times but pathologically polite Kansas City would rather stay home than participate in this event that's still dogged by controversy.
