More of a magazine promo but we like the personal stories about rubbing elbows with cowtown heroes, it's quaint and kinda pathetic like all good local feature writing. Take a look:


Charismatic new mayor Quinton Lucas and SNL star Heidi Gardner are reppin' KC well

Oh my! What to say about this atrocious article from Martin Cizmar?

It's generally always a bad sign when a writer begins by talking about themselves and the "famous people" they've hung out with through the years.

And then there's that reliance on hip slang like "reppin'" which should have been dropped following graduation from the college newspaper.

With skills like these, Mr. Cizmar is sure to be landing a position with local TV news as an investigative reporter. "Mayor Lucas....Mayor Lucas, what is your favorite color?"
