MUST SEE!!! KANSAS CITY ACTOR LEGEND ED ASNER SENDS TKC SHOUT OUT!!!
Leigh Ann is one of our all-time faves, she is KC Blogger original and one of the nicest people we've ever "met" by way of this blog.
Today, Leigh Ann did something amazing that is the highlight of TKC blog life.
In support of a great cause, The Ed Asner Family Center, she put together a shout out from one of the best activists and actors in Kansas City history.
Background . . .
Growing up, the Lou Grant character was an exceptional depiction of the best journalistic ideals people wanted to believe about newsrooms - That included a very young TKC who was allowed to watch way too much TV.
And now . . .
CELEBRATE KANSAS CITY JOURNALISM!!! LOU GRANT JUST SAID TKC WAS SPUNKY!!!
Honestly, I've been thinking about moving on from this blog lately . . . Or at least handing it over to my trio of incredible and EPIC Indian helpers who have strengthened my belief in capitalism. HOWEVER, tonight Leigh Ann reminded me why I spend so much time dedicated to maintaining leadership of at least some semblance of community journalism in Kansas City. This shout out from one of my heroes is a very big deal to me and it totally fills my heart with gratitude that somebody would think to put this together.
Take a look:
Hopefully, we'll have more for the morning but this is a great place to take a moment of contemplation.
Thank you Leigh Ann and thank you everybody for reading.
