In fact . . . A little patience is advised given that it's not like customers are waiting for valuable news that they can just get from their phone.
Accordingly, one of our BEST, BRIGHTEST & KICK-ASS readers noticed this desperate message recently sent to golden ghetto subscribers . . .
The note was posted over the weekend and the responses were all very nice, neighborly and encouraging.
This leads us to two conclusions . . .
Kansas City seniors are getting better at using social media and they subscribe to the paper out of habit and not because they NEED any of the info it contains.

THE KANSAS CITY STAR IS NO LONGER A REAL BIZ!!!
It's operating out of a P.O. Box on The Plaza, workers are e-mailing stories from home AND Uber Eats is actually more successful at delivering product to local doorsteps.
For the most part, the McClatchy corp is really just a tax write-off for a hedge fund.
Moreover . . .
The local newspaper biz model seems more like the kind of operation that powers the sale of Girl Scout cookies . . . Except that people really like Thin Mints.
But I digress . . .
In fact, this is a nice slice of local life because it shows more than a bit of community support for a cowtown institution that no longer powers the local discourse and mostly serves to offer a sense of comfort & normalcy to people during their golden years . . . Locals with pets who need a cheap & convenient cleanup option.
You decide . . .
