Honestly, a flowery and overly dramatic missive on recent civil unrest is pretty good.
Mary Sanchez is a Kansas City Star throwaway pundit who continues to pen freelance progressive screeds at discount rates. That doesn't mean she's not a better writer than most, even if her most of her observations are pulled directly from Democratic National Committee talking points.
Still, in this column she PERFECTLY captures the "spirit" of recent civil unrest on the Country Club Plaza as viewed from the vantage of worried middle-aged women throughout the metro.
The screed doesn't really have a point and seems to absolve every side of fault if only to put emotive reflections center stage amid far-reaching American upheaval.
The sound of glass shattering competes with my own hurried steps hoofing it through the Country Club Plaza, anxious to reach my car. A plume of tear gas, not the first nor the last of the night, floats behind me as I head west through the center of the shopping district.
You decide . . .
