Next month, the 2007 Tony Awards – named for the late actress and director Antoinette Perry (1888-1946) – will be presented at the historic Radio City Music Hall and aired on CBS. The event honors excellence in New York City’s theater community.

In July, the 2007 Zoey Awards – named for the very-much-alive veteran Kansas City femme illusionist Zoe Kelly – will be presented at the historic Athenaeum at 900 East Linwood Avenue. The event honors, according to Ms. Kelly, “all aspects of Kansas City’s gay community, including best bar owner and best male vocalist.”

According to published reports, Kansas City-based Hallmark has discovered three previously unknown emotions that can be captured in greeting cards.

They're: requiapathy, "the combination of relief and guilt that comes with the sudden realization that you no longer miss a dead loved one"; seprudity, "the feeling of appreciating a coworker's dedication without fully understanding his or her job function"; and trepatiousness, "a synthesis of rage and jealousy, though more muted and often accompanied by a sensation of weightlessness."

At this point, we should mention that this news came courtesy of The Onion. Read more here.

We know that this news isn't exactly real. But it's funny because we've been feeling requiapathy over the death of Jerry Falwell.

When Kay Barnes made her big announcement yesterday that she’s running for Congress, she made it crystal clear that she’s trying to tap into her small-town roots.

She made her announcement in her hometown of St. Joseph while standing in front of her mother’s home, with four generations of her family nearby. According to a statement on her Web site, the former Kansas City mayor said: “I never forgot I was a daughter of St. Joseph, and its values were never far from my mind.” Then, according to the site, she said she couldn’t wait to visit “communities in which our family, the Cronkites and Morfords, have roots, and they include, of course, my hometown of St. Joseph, plus Albany and Oregon, and Skidmore and Maitland and my favorite, Pumpkin Center, where my mother was born.”

Wait. What?

The Killers at City Market

Posted By on Mon, May 14, 2007 at 10:31 AM

The Wayward Son is actually wayward this week. It's not clear where Jason Harper is right now, but we're told it has something to do with west Texas and Penthouse magazine. So this week, expect some fill-ins in this space.

Today, here's a review by Pitch freelancer Richard Gintowt of The Killers show:

It doesn't take a major-label A&R pedigree to understand why The Killers are huge. When it comes to '80s nostalgia and pseudo-Springsteen stadium rock, Brandon Flowers & company are spot on. And although I've always enjoyed the songs I've heard on the radio, I've never quite felt moved by the band like Jama Crady.
