HAPPY NEW YEAR D-BAGS!!! WHAT DO YOU WANT TO SEE FROM KANSAS CITY AND THE TKC BLOG COMMUNITY IN 2018???
Let's start this year with a shout out to the readers, politicos, consultants, lawyers, developers and all manner of creeps in Kansas City who comprise the readership of the only media outlet that really matters in this wicked little town.
A question to start things . . .
WHAT WOULD DOES KANSAS CITY NEED TO ACCOMPLISH IN 2018???
Of course suggestions for our readership are welcome given that we've been dictating the discourse in this town for nearly a decade while corporate newsies mostly react to talk that starts here when they're not mining cat photos and pathetic dramedy from the plebs on social media. But let's be real . . . Reader suggestions always need to be taken with a grain of salt because people mostly serve to destroy a good thing . . . Whether it's Democracy or avocado toast.
But I digress . . .
This is a critical year for Kansas City, the nation and the world.
Midterm elections will determine the course of the Presidency and thereby the world. Jackson County elections threaten to re-shift the balance of power locally or at least keep that vaporware ponzi scheme train out in Eastern Jack going AND the lead up to City Council & Mayoral elections along with more airport slap fighting should bring this town one step closer to bankruptcy and beyond . . .
Suffice it to say, without the leadership, gully, silly and hot fire prose along with the EPIC wit of this blog . . . Our readers would be forced to make their wives, loved ones and randos at the bus stop listen to their opinions . . . But TOGETHER we've created the only space in town that can ruin a Frank White golfing trip, inspire a spit take from the Mayor drinking pricey scotch OR bring down a BILLION DOLLAR NO-BID corrupt deal whilst a former Council Lady still brags that we described her as "sexy Cindy" to all of her friends as she feigns indignation. NATCH.
Sooooooo . . . We're taking suggestions for the future of Kansas City and this essential part of its discourse that actually knows how local government really works better than half of the people running for mayor and most of the roustabouts who believe that corporate transcription or Courthouse gossip writing qualifies as serving the reading public.
You decide . . .
