SHOW AND PROVE: THIS IS WHY KANSAS CITY READS THIS BLOG EVERY DAMN DAY!!!
We don't brag. That's for noobs.
Instead we show and prove.
No big, bold, red type on this one . . . Just consider this a bit of an early morning mission statement for our most dedicated and kick-ass readers.
Anyhoo . . .
Here's a quick compilation of this blog community contributing to the Kansas City discourse and the many, many thousands of people (and sometimes more) who visit this blog every damn day:
Dead Tree Media is delivering this story to their readers today: Kaplan's Fabrics will close on the Country Club Plaza
We had a, funny, stupid and interesting discussion on the topic of Kaplan's last weekend.
A story about charity taxis . . . KC Council paves way for new charitable taxi for blind and elderly
We discussed the implications of this move back when it was still in committee.
Here's a really great write-up and story regarding a discrimination complaint in Meth Town: Damages awarded to AutoZone employee in sexual harassment lawsuit
We talked about the implications of the verdict two days ago.
Garrett Haake did an EXCELLENT job with this important campaign news: KC 2016 RNC fundraiser announced . . . Around the same time, we talked about the behind the scenes players on the topic.
Back in the early stages of the blog we used to get upset when we didn't get linked but now stories start here so often that it's kind of cool to watch a conversation start here and then really take off throughout Kansas City . . . Again, not bragging even though a bit of self-promotion is part of the media game like it or not. We also like to try and serve as a resource and we're STILL trying to teach Internets denizens about the connected nature of the web despite so many failed efforts to create walled-gardens whether they're social media, app-based or otherwise.
This blog is about FREE SPEECH AND FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION.
Like it or not, it's also a creative writing exercise.
We all share our love of hotties . . . Or at least those of us with a pulse.
And we don't just tolerate, we dominate our haters by enduring and moving forward while they remain stuck in the past. And let's not forget we couldn't do any of this without KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS!!!
We never want the news or the conversation to stop and THIS isn't some cheesy Jay Leno monologue . . . To paraphrase one of our philosophy heroes - KRS-ONE. . . This is just one post out of many, like a piggy bank, this is one penny.
More in a bit.
