Re: “Topless mommy bottoms out in Olathe

I think female breasts are illegal in Olathe. Didn't the city council pass an ordinance to that effect to run Orlando's out of town?

Re: “Departing councilwomen punt on Plaza office-building decision

My favorite Sharon Sanders Brooks moment came when she was sputtering mad at her fellow councilmembers during live session for taking a vote on some important matter (I think it might have been the fate of CIMO) while she was out in the lobby taking pictures with her sorority sisters and thus unable to cast her vote.

Re: “Here are five new jobs for departing Mayor Mark Funkhouser

He should wait four years and run as an in-district candidate in the 4th District.

Re: “Jack Cashill's latest Obama conspiracy contained 'egregious error'

It no longer matters to Cashill that the record has been corrected. All that matters is that to bogus information got out there in the first place, and now there will be a cottage industry of people who will forever believe it's true.

And that's all that matters.

Re: “Feds seeking prison time for Rodney Jones and Kassie Liebsch in KU ticket scandal (updated)

I'd think extensive partying is exactly the way to spend your ill-gotten gains. I mean, blow that wad and have a blast before you go to prison and have to pay restitution, right?

Re: “The Star's Mike Hendricks wakes from nap, scratches head about KCMO election, returns grumpily to sleep

Mike,

You say you're not complaining, but it sounds an awful lot like you are. I'll read tomorrow's column, but I'm quite certain it won't satisfy me. And judging by your paper's readership numbers, it won't satisfy many others, either.

As far as your passion goes, it seems you've been fairly dispirited for a while. I can't recall much that you've done that was stellar since you were picking Robert Kory apart a few years back with the Wonderful World of Oz fiasco, or whatever that scam was called. You were really top notch then. And now that I think of it, you rallied up a nice column a week or two ago about the Sunflower site going to shit once more. But Scott and the Pitch rightfully point out that columns like the one he references isn't the best use of ink that the Star's buying.

Scott,

You nailed it with this column. Sad thing is, Hendricks used to be a great voice and wrote and reported with passion. Yael's the only Star columnist who seems interested anymore.
