TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! CHECK THE NEW BOOK FROM KANSAS CITY NEWSMAN LEGEND AND BLOGGER BILL TAMMEUS!!!
We've been a fan of Kansas City news dude Bill Tammeus for more than a bit.
We've been following the writing of this legendary news man for a while but even more so since he has stepped up his blog game . . . While there aren't any comments allowed, Bill Tammeus has shared his perspective on a faith-based approach to recent Plaza problems and even taken a stab @ our disgusting and uncivil discourse here @ TKC.
To wit . . .
TKC CELEBRATES THE NEW BILL TAMMEUS BOOK!!!
All things considered, it looks like a really nice perspective on faith, good people and the niceness of flyover country. Take a peek:
New Tammeus book
My next book is now out in print and e-version and I think it’s one you’ll want.
Woodstock: A Story of Middle Americans is rooted in my hometown of Woodstock, Ill., but it’s neither a memoir nor a book just about Woodstock exactly. Rather, it’s an attempt to help readers understand what people I call Middle Americans brought to this country in the wake of the so-called Greatest Generation.
Here’s a paragraph from the book about that:
"Middle America stretches geographically beyond the Midwest. It was and is, finally, a state of mind, a middle-class way of living that has more to do with industriousness than with wealth, more to do with an eagerness to learn than with advanced college degrees, more with an openness to possibilities than with the benefits of inheritance, with an ability to know we need to adapt and change than with a resolute determination to remain fixed in place. It has to do with a capacity for outrage when, finally, we have seen enough. It also has to do with being pragmatic, practical, optimistic, ethical, problem-solving, patriotic in a broad sense and not cynical. We were and are more open-hearted than open-minded, but at our best we are both."
