Kansas City Walk: Local Notes, '24 Threats & Ireland Loves Palestine

Once again Angel Candice inspires us to finish up our bloggy endeavors early on Sunday night as we share just a bit of pop culture, community news and top headlines.

However . . . 

More than anything else about "the discourse" this blog LOVES inconvenient facts  . . . Here's one that should leave our Irish-American friends scratching their heads: 

"Nearly 80% of Irish people back the Palestinians and think that Israel is committing genocide in Gaza, according to the most recent polling. This high level of support for the Palestinian people may come as a surprise to those looking in from the outside, given that Ireland is a majority-white, majority-Catholic country situated more than 2,000 miles away from the Middle East."

Something to consider along with a bunch of other news stories we're reading tonight . . .
