I remember when it was safe to go to KC Atheltics games on 18th and Brooklyn, park your car in some black guys front yard, give him 5 bucks so he would watch yuor car, then your dad and mom would stay and drink Schlitz Beer on his porch and you would catch lightning bugs in his front yard with his kids.

I remember when the city declared eminent domain and razed houses to the ground from downtown all the way south for the recently installed HiWay 71.

Lemme think, oh yeah, they did that in 1958. I don't know what grass grew faster, the grass under the feet of our local politicians, or the grass on that strip of land that sat vacant for 50 years.

I remember the wooden floors at Emery Bird Thayer, my mom laughing as she held her dress down on Petticoat Lane and getting to order anything I wanted in the Tea Room at Macy's.

I remember wanting grilled cheese every time.

Mr. Tony,
I do not like this game. Waxing nostalgic, looking to the past while we get reamed in the rear in real time.
No sir, I will keep my eye on the ball. Mr. Mayor, Mikey Sanders et al I see your hand sneaking into my purse. Stop it! No more money to blow on your legacies.

Convenient to forget that some of us were not let into the various tea rooms. We took our elevenses standing up at the Kresge's side door hotdog outlet.

I'm so KC I can remember delivering boxes of sticks of dynamite and blasting caps to the crews that were building NKC Hospital, Worlds of Fun, one of the twin stadiums, and the TWA Overhaul Base at KCI so they could blast out the rock and put in huge storm sewer systems.
Charles
Wheeler (the only good KC mayor I can remember in my lifetime) was mayor and he got shit done around here, and he didn't rob us and lie to us like everybody has since his time in office.

Yeah Chuck. I remember asking my dad why the city would do that. He says, "Big midtown freeway coming through".....I was an old man by the time they put the traffic lights in.
