Did The Pitch Inspire Some Theater Dude To 86 Himself & Then Steal TKC Copy?!?

I've always liked The Pitch way more than they've ever liked me.

One of their drunk-ass editors used to scream at the top of her lungs to a newsroom of terrified hipsters about how she was gonna kick my ass. 

Later . . . Amid failed marriages and broken friendships . . . This blog watched the ownership bounce around from one trust fund to the next. 

Still, we've admired the operation because they were the FIRST alternative Kansas City news outlet. 

Now . . . 

I don't know how "alternative" it is to pen adoring foodie reviews, offer local concert pix and then reprint a bunch of wire stories without much commentary and very little room for community interaction.

Over the past week we've been goofing on Missouri political ladies and their right to "bare arms" in the State House. 

Today The Pitch swiped our clever banter in service of old news . . . Which is still better than helping a bunch of cowtown theater people bully some dude into tripping the light fantastic without ANYBODY getting their day in court or filing complaints with the po-po. 

Nevertheless . . . 

Here's their FAMILIAR note about the dress code distraction . . .
