Brett has been on Twitter (or Tweeter as he called it May 28) for only 26 days. But when his pup disappeared, the Mission Hills neighborhood search for the pooch suddenly had eyes on it all over the country. However, yesterday's travails and the digital version of a poster-on-streetlights-campaign actually shed a lot more light on us than on him.
Reed, the councilman for the 3rd District, explained that he (then a teenager), along with his five brothers and mother, stayed at the Community LINC homeless shelter at 4012 Troost "until we got back on our feet."
Reed's admission was during a meeting of the City Council's Neighborhoods and Healthy Communities Committee, where the Homeless Services Coalition of Greater Kansas City made a presentation regarding homelessness in the city.
And is that one of those mermaids Jason Mewes Jay (of Jay and Silent Bob fame) was talking about in Mallrats?
By the erase marks, it looks like someone tried to alter the chalk art.
The Big Biscuit serves breakfast and lunch with portions that often overflow the plates, such as the 1/2-pound ham steak that is a de facto eating challenge. There are 10 kinds of pancakes if you include the pigs in blankets (sausages wrapped in buttermilk pancakes) and a heap of omelets, waffles, scrambles and French toast. Lunch is burgers, sandwiches, salads and soups in the style of a country diner - it's not eating, unless there is something fried on the plate.
Today comes details on the Buzz Under the Stars sequel, on Friday, September 14, also at Berkley Riverfront Park. That show will feature Gotye (so hot right now), Chairlift and Zammuto (the new band from one of the guys in the Books). Freeloader tickets are on sale Wednesday, June 6, at 10 a.m., until Thursday, June 7, at midnight.
Zagat was acquired by Google in September 2011 - a countermove to the rising popularity of Yelp (which the iPhone's Siri application currently mines for its restaurant recommendations).
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals sent the above image to The Pitch today. The sign is a memorial for the 30 cows killed when a transport truck crashed through a guardrail on Interstate 70, careened down an embankment and landed on 118th Street in Kansas City, Kansas, on April 26. The cattle were en route to slaughter.
PETA is asking the Kansas Department of Transportation to put up the memorial sign at the crash scene. The animal-rights organization says the sign reminds truck "drivers of their responsibility to the thousands of animals they haul to their deaths every day."
"It's tragic enough that cows will end up in slaughterhouses, where their throats will be slit and some of them will be skinned alive," PETA Vice President Dan Mathews said in a statement. "PETA's sign will remind truck drivers that the least that we can do for these animals is to take care to save them from plunging off of an overpass to a bloody, drawn-out death on the pavement below."
I left a message with the Kansas DOT. I'll update when I hear back.
UPDATE: "We don't post fatality signs for anyone - animal or human," says Steve Swartz, KDOT's public information officer.
