NEWSFLASH!!! KANSAS CITY WHITE PEOPLE LOVE PETS MORE THAN HOBOS AMID LIFE-THREATENING ARCTIC BLAST!!!
Just a quick observation amid all of this cold weather coverage . . .
First, an acknowledgement . . . OF COURSE TKC wants you to protect your pets during this hard freeze.
In fact, we salute groups doing important work like animal rescue amid these bitterly cold temperatures. Check Chain of Hope for more info . . .
However . . .
IT'S CLEAR THAT KANSAS CITY LOVES PETS MORE THAN PO'FOLK AND HOBOS AMID THIS TRAGIC COLD SPELL!!!
We've noticed a bunch of doggie stories and panicked social media blasts about animals in the cold . . . But nothing much about cold PEOPLE. Kinda sad considering there are folks slugging it out at local homeless shelters that are overcrowded and even the working poor struggle to pay heating bills, battle against landlords who won't turn up the heat and suffer in much worse shape than local animals.
Anyhoo . . . Just a trend we hope is corrected as cold weather coverage eventually turns to the human impact of these frigid temperatures and maybe cold-hearted animal lovers warm up to the blight of their fellow humankind.
