TKC CELEBRATES THIS TOWN'S STRONGEST: KANSAS CITY WEEKLY POWER RANKINGS!!!
Tonight we quickly review the work week and rank all of the topics and people who proved strongest in Kansas City in these past few days . . .
CHECK THE TKC WEEKLY POWER RANKINGS TONIGHT!!!
Here we go . . .
1. Gov. Jay Nixon Taking The National Stage As Maybe Vice Prez
Never mind all of the Democrat state legislators, lobbyists and support staff who helped achieve a GOP Double Veto Override FAIL . . . Gov. Jay is getting all the glory as he earns nationwide recognition and wins consideration to possibly carry Hillary's umbrella for the next 4 years.
2. Old School Media Death Threat
A KU J-School Professor tweeted . . .
"Blood is on the hands of the #NRA. Next time, let it be YOUR sons and daughters"
And the social media nightmare elicited a firestorm of criticism along with the realization that J-School is mostly a baby sitting service for future housewives and insurance salesmen.
3. The Fight For The Country Club Plaza
Tonight, there is increased security @ The Plaza Art Fair as white people visit this town's premiere entertainment district. Still, fear of violent teen flash mobs persists as Kansas City remains unprepared to confront a longstanding problem in a way that doesn't play to this town's worst impulses.
4. Pastor Brooks Drama Playing Out Behind The Scenes
No, the Pastor Brooks drama isn't even close to a conclusion and the political consequences are just starting to move into place for a disgraced politico.
5. Kansas City Chiefs Fanboys
Everybody in Kansas City is a Chiefs fan right now as this town is awash in hype over the extended preseason and an offense that's still sputtering. Super Bowl talk is already a tragic reality for a wicked little town that's just proving itself to be anything but a major league city. Natch.
As always, this list has been compiled according to scientific TKC polling and market research data and it's a weekly comprehensive guide to local powerful people.
