Mike Moustakas Will Probably Beat The Royals' Home Run Record, But Another Still Stands

Kansas City Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas is on the verge of breaking the team's home run record. Former slugger Steve "Bye Bye" Balboni's record of 36 home runs in one season has stood since 1985. But if you consider the Kansas City A's era, the record is further away - but still within reach.

That new top cop apparently just can't look like a top cop in ANY situation. Gawd, I feel like a millennial basing something on looks, but shoot, the police chief needs to LOOK and BE tough as nails in this City. It appears Chief Smith possesses neither of those qualities.

My favorite Charlie Parker story concerns his request to his wife when he found out he was dying... "Whatever you do, don't let me be buried in Kansas City"! In case you weren't aware, he hated the way he had been treated by the Black musical community here.

That fits well with the history of Highway 71. Bruce Watkins fought City Hall for decades, trying to stop the destruction of neighborhood cohesion it would cause. He failed, and expressed on his deathbed that this failure was the biggest regret of his lifetime.

After his death, his bitterest opponent in the fight, Emmanuel Cleaver became Mayor and named the road that tore the African-American Community apart "The Bruce R. Watkins Freeway"!

Some groups are their own worst enemies, aren't they?

Yes, you're unbelievably shallow, you're right.
