This week we're gonna try something new as we keep expanding our content offerings as readership continues to grow for our KICK-ASS TKC BLOG COMMUNITY.

This morning we took a peek into our archives and found one of our favorite pix of Kansas City's "Reefer Pinup" Sophie Sassafras. She's doing her part to fight the good fight for fashion and marijuana law reform against draconian anti-drug laws . . . Likewise we want to keep Kansas City informed beyond the scope of just our local discourse and provide a collection of important links which informs our cowtown.

Still, an endless debate of national issues is not what TKC is about . . . We want to keep things local and this section of the blog is merely to acknowledge a world beyond Kansas City for a brief moment and to share just a few things that we like, find interesting or just stumbled upon beyond the local chatter that is the main focus of this blog.

We'll call this a revisiting of THE TKC MEGAPOST and invite locals to e-mail if they want to learn more:
