Kansas City Logo = Crosby Kemper?!?!



A Kansas City insider asks a good question for Sunday morning . . .

Is the new KC (CK) logo really a secret tribute to Crosby Kemper???

He was really WASPY and I thought those folks were down with all that Freemasonry conspiracy voodoo . . . So, I totally believe in the secret message.

Just a few more links we dug up to bury with the Kansas City rich dude . . .

Kemper weaves his legacy into the fabric of KC . .. Given The Current State Of This Town . . . Maybe That Wasn't Such A Great Gift . . . Speaking Of Fabric . . . Buy my buddy's sweatshirt and other CK merch by clicking here.

Cowtown Invitation For Plebs To Pay Heed: A celebration of R. Crosby Kemper Jr.'s life will be held Thursday. The public is invited.

Talkback Live - R. Crosby Kemper Jr . . . The "Live" Part Not So Much . . .

On the other hand . . .

This Sunday I've spent just a bit of time contemplating a shared mortality betwixt rich and poor alike. Maybe Mr. Kemper wasn't so different from Kansas City working-class denizens who also struggle with family drama and offspring who'll never live up to the legacy of their ancestors.

And after thinking about it for quite awhile (on the toilet) . . . I'm still not mourning this Kansas City legend who died with a wallet slightly heavier than God's . . . No matter how many local politicos kiss the ring on his cold, dead hands.

Damn you just now figuring out what the new logo really meant?

I'll say it again and again. Crosby was a man, not like other men maybe, but just a man. His value to Kansas City is incalculable and he will be sorely missed for many, many years.

In spite of being Steve Rose's "best friend," Mr Kemper's best legacy might be that he had no reluctance to poke a stick at all of the local elitist windbags.

Thank You!

Godspeed Crosby!

I never did like that prick Rose

Crosby's best friend was Lyle Wells, who died last Sunday....Amazing coincidence. Sad, but amazing.

That shitty logo on a heather grey Walmart sweatshirt pretty much sums up the creative class in KC.

I thought the logo was to honor Kelly Clarkson. Or for those of us who miss Craig Kilborn. Or maybe we just really like Louis CK.

The king is dead and you are all making jokes!

The "joke" is on you. Mariner isn't such a nice guy and he's totally going to reign supreme in the next few years. When he gets done with his decade long ski trip!

The more I see that godawful logo, the more it grates on me. Why is it CK instead of KC? English reads right to left. The C comes first in that logo. I bet right now, that logo is being brutally panned in PR and design classes at universities the world over.

The city name KC comes from the legend of the old union scab Casey Jones. A patron saint and hero to the Southern Pacific Railroad bosses and union busters to this day.
