THE TKC SATURDAY NIGHT PLAYLIST!!! KANSAS CITY, MOON LANDING 50TH AND LEGACY OF AMERICAN EXCEPTIONALISM !!!
A few considerations for this evening that marks and EPIC American historical achievement . . .
The EPIC American achievement applies to Kansas City inasmuch as some people say the best days of this town are behind us whilst most optimistic souls continue to win elections.
Some of our favorite local and national missives on tonight's anniversary . . .
First moon landing: World celebrates 50th anniversary of Apollo 11
Kansas City residents remember moon landing 50 years later
Local artist had vision of Apollo 11
Moon-Landing Hoax Still Lives On, 50 Years After Apollo 11. But Why?
The Royals and the moon landing
Moon landing laid the groundwork for future Mars landing
The Apollo 11 Moon Landing Was A Triumph Of American Exceptionalism
Back here on Earth, the Chinese can build a bridge in two days.
And so we ask . . .
WILL THE U.S. EVER GO BACK TO THE MOON AND BEYOND OR IS THE SPACE RACE NOTHING BUT TOURISTY FROU-FROU?!?!
Remember that current Congressman and former Mayor Cleaver coined the last part of that phase about the streetcar which has continued to spark local debate and out of this world tax increases.
And all of this inspires our moon-y playlist for tonight . . .
As always, thanks for reading this week and have a save and fun Saturday night . . .
