TKC QUESTION: IS KANSAS CITY ANOTHER RODENT INFESTED MESS, TOO?!?!
Once again the Prez has directed the nation's attention to the problems of the nation's cities in his own divisive and sensational way . . .
Here's a quick roundup of the conversation so far . . .
Guardian: Whenever Trump says ‘infested’, we know he’s talking about people of colour
CNN: Trump hosts African American pastors and faith leaders at the White House
AP: Trump claims black people love his comments about Baltimore
Vanity Fair: Trump’s Racist Rant Omits Kushner’s Vermin-Filled Properties
Fox News: Hannity - Trump 'told the truth,' Dems not concerned with Baltimore's problems
And here's how it applies locally as an AWESOME TKC READER sent us this SHOT earlier in the year of a really nasty and HUGE rat dead outside of City Hall . . .
And so we ask . . .
WOULD KANSAS CITY ALSO QUALIFY AS A RODENT INFESTED MESS?!?!
Sure, nobody like to think of their town as a place where vermin dominate the streets.
But let's look at the facts. There's actually a rodent crisis in American cities across the nation.
We reported on this earlier in the year . . .
Remember that our TKC blog community called out this issue a couple of years ago. One day later local news followed up but the problems has seemed to have worsened this year.
Downtown Kansas City denizens have seen a noticeable population boom among rats during Springtime 2019 but calls to City Hall reveal rat control programs shut down and merged with 311 - A long suffering help line where responses to complaints are measured in months.
And so because talk of practical matters like this one was silenced during the election . . .
BEFORE WE DEFEND BALTIMORE BLIGHT, KANSAS CITY MIGHT WANT TO REMEMBER THIS TOWN ALSO HAS A RAT PROBLEM!!!
You decide . . .
