KANSAS CITY: HIRE ROBERT BUTLER!!!
TKC NOTE: Here's an important missive about life after Dead Tree Media for one of Kansas City's most thoughtful and intelligent writers.
NOW . . . KANSAS CITY NEEDS TO HIRE ROBERT BUTLER BECAUSE HE'S ONE OF THE BEST WRITERS AND THINKERS IN THIS COWTOWN!!!
Former Kansas City Star Movie Critic Robert Butler writes: "For the second time in three years, I’ve been downsized. I’m not happy about the geometric progression this suggests.
"In 2011 I was let go by The Kansas City Star after a long career as a journalist. I found a new home with the Public Affairs Department of the KC Public Library, working with a great bunch of people putting on free educational public events -- lectures, film series, exhibits. I wrote and edited the library’s monthly calendar and press releases, wrote brochures and produced a weekly film blog on the library’s site. I also made (and still make) regular appearances on radio and TV.
"But last week I learned that because of funding cutbacks, my position is being eliminated.
"I love working, I love writing. And I like being part of a productive group.
"So...anybody out there need the talents of a wordsmith?
