Cold Kansas City MLK Day 2018
12th & Oak and trash pickup are shut down in remembrance of a former slain civil rights leader . . . Meanwhile, bad weather has cancelled some events around the metro . . .
City offices and 311 will be closed tomorrow (Jan. 15) to observe Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Curbside trash and recycling pickup will shift to the holiday schedule, which means your pickup will be one day later than usual.
On the bright side, divisive debate about "The Dream" will distract most clueless plebs whilst rising global income inequality creates an even greater underclass which transcends most demographic prejudices that have always served to keep the working poor fighting over crumbs.
Common, John Legend - Glory is the song of the day.
