To wit . . .
KANSAS CITY NEWSIES ARE MOSTLY REPORTING STORIES ABOUT HUGS AND SENTIMENTAL TRIBUTE AMID A CRACKDOWN ON DEETS SUPPORTED BY SOME LOCAL POLITICOS BEHIND THE SCENES!!!
Here's the word one of our newsies friends confirmed by most of the reporting on this one that doesn't seem to satisfy the inquiring minds of the public that's already asking for autopsy deets in order to protect the safety amid the opening of the park . . .
"It's a lockdown and the Unified Government has already starting fighting with one another over this . . . They're trying not to return calls to TV and when they do it's pretty obvious that they've been on the phone to corporate advisers. The story that's already being killed is the $225 million in STAR bonds for development of the Schlitterbahn project . . . It looks like mostly vigil stuff for tonight despite a lot of info that we're getting from patrons of the park talking about their close calls."
