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.

Very nice my friend.

We all have goals. As always, Tony, it cracks me up that yours are very attainable.

God bless you, Tony! I almost wrote to him a couple of years ago to make this request, so when I saw this opportunity I made short work of setting the wheels in motion. Props to your one of your biggest fanboys (John O.) who bankrolled the endeavor! You make Kansas City so much more entertaining and as far as local journalism goes you are invaluable so please don't go away!!!

Tony’s blog has nice titty pics, that’s what makes it great. Also, Ed Asner is senile & doesn’t realize Tony lives in his mom’s basement

Tony, Whether or not you would have gotten an endorsement from Ed Asner I want to say from a daily reader/frequent contributor thank you for hosting this dialogue of misfits and uncontrolled fiends. You have built a great place for us to read, get pissed off, laugh, cry and just enjoy being in a conversation with people we love,hate,despise, poke fun at and insult.
Thanks,

Tony can't leave. I read TKC every morning. I just wish he would accept more advertising so he could make lots of $$ for all of his efforts.

Glad to see he is still alive, hope Mr. Asner is doing well.

Where's Super Dave you ask 2:13? If I had douchebags of the likes of you stomping on my nuts all the time you wouldn't see me either. He's around but on sites where douchebags are not allowed to act like you do and have to admit who they are over faceless turds such as yourself.

Asner is a commie through and through. It's like getting a shout out from Stalin.

Because Ed Asner, beloved star of stage and screen, ordered the deaths of millions of people in purges, planned starvation, and other antics.

Go back to bed and try again later, Hyperbole Man.

I'm surprised that old Sandinista SOB is still alive, even on the web.
