TKC PUBLIC SERVICE: KANSAS CITY MARATHON RUINS SATURDAY MORNING!!!
The Kansas City Marathon is currently underway and that makes travel through midtown mostly impossible for people who are up early.
There's extra security, more space for "fans" that are really just miserable relatives and even more leeway for runners. Check the Marathon website for route info.
Nevertheless . . .
HAS THE KANSAS CITY MARATHON OUTLIVED ITS USEFULNESS AND SHOULDN'T THEY REALLY HAVE THIS THING IN OVERLAND PARK???
The middle-class hobbyists might raise a few coins for charity but for the most part, the marathon is a self-indulgent activity that's not really that healthy for participants and blocks busy KCMO streets . . . Most Midtowners regard it as a nuisance and their voices have been consistently ignored by the local political elite.
You decide . . .
