No Weekend For Her

That’s because there’s no narrative to bolster.

The pictures and the news that this is the third “gun violence” at this 7-11 in the last year and a half is enough for you to figure out that this is Bell Curve Kansas City.  NYT Census Explorer has all three census tracts at this corner, which is near the Bermuda Triangle, as tracts that are majority but not heavily black (51, 55 and 56 percent).  Areas south and east of Interstate 435 are the Ferguson of the Kansas City area, where blacks are headed and the areas are “changing,” at the expense of the traditional but depopulating ghettos in KCMO proper.

Unbelievable, some black woman once wore this on her head.

39th and Benton in KCMO is Bell Curve City.

If Only This Worked

Barring the Royals actually winning, I guess it’ll be time for the good ole fashioned fallback solution:  Recreation centers.

There’s just one sentence from this that tells you everything you need to know:

Site selection officials concluded after visiting the city that the Sprint Center lacked sufficient suites for entertaining high-dollar donors.

Who I’m sure will be dumping all that money on the RNC just to come there and watch someone who is not their hand-picked horse accept the nomination.

Two years before the fact, I already know what happened.  We had a dozen non-credible flashes in the pans flame in and flame out during the primary season, dividing the anti-establishment vote, making it possible for the establishment’s candidate to win early primaries with low percentage pluralities but win all those states’ delegates because they’re winner-take-all.  What there was not was someone in the race running as a militant populist outsider willing to take no prisoners, which was the only thing that could have derailed the establishment.  By the time the middle of the primary season comes, the flashes in the pan ran out, and the establishment’s guy had such a big lead in the delegate tally that opposing him became futile.  In July 2016, at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, the Republican National Convention nominated one John Ellis “Jeb” Bush for President.  Later that year, the Democrat nominee, Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia, beat Bush handily in the November election.


I looked at it again, and there’s an element that’s even more repulsive.

The city was willing to spend more than $7 million to create more suites.  How nice of them to pay for space to entertain multimillionaires and the occasional billionaire.  Because we all know that Sheldon Adelson is so hard up for money these days that he couldn’t afford a week of Kansas City’s high life.

As it is, the city spent $850,000 in its failed bin to win this convention.

This has got to stop.


Mrs. Michael Sam’s Pedigree

Well, well.  The NFL’s Great Gay Hope’s bed mate has some interesting pedigree.

The league better hope that this apple has rolled far from the tree.

Then again, organized crime in Kansas City did launch Harry Truman.

While the big news over the last several days has been Glenn Miller, that only took people’s minds off the Bermuda Triangle Sniper.

Well, that story is hot again, because a suspect has been arrested, at his Grandview home.  No mug or name yet.

The address that the Star indicates as the suspect’s is in a census tract that is 65% white and 28% black.

The Star has this video, which shows you some of the suspect’s neighbors:

The most curious part here is that the suspect’s car is a Dodge Neon with Illinois plates.  Now, it’s not unusual to see Illinois plates in St. Louis, even on cars owned by people who live on the Missouri side of the river, as they find some pretext to register their car in Illinois because Illinois has no automobile personal property taxes.  But it is very unusual for someone who lives clear on the other side of the state to have Illinois plates.



Can’t link this one back to Linder and VNN, I don’t think.  And don’t look for the SPLC to be sending beg letters because of him.

If he did it, I’d be curious for a motive.


Mug and name.  We have a Mohammed.


How he was made.

His antics seem to have the Bermuda Triangle as its epicenter, and that’s solid Bell Curve City.

My first inclination is to say that the dude has to be white or at least non-black, because blacks don’t have the patience and impulse control to be good snipers.

But then I realize I said that about the D.C. beltway snipers.
