Stealing Time: Monday, November 3
By JUSTIN KENDALL
I read a lot of local blogs when I probably should be “working” or “reporting” or whatever my co-workers in this building do. I probably owe The Pitch about 2,187 stolen hours. Hey, I’m totally going to make it up. Starting today. So here’s Stealing Time, a daily digest of the best stories on Kansas City blogs. Just don’t tell my boss about that whole not-working thing.
General Blather has an awesomely hilarious photo of the loudest — and possibly the emptiest — stadium in the NFL.
Jeff Roe’s The Source unloads everything Sam Graves’ campaign didn’t smear Kay Barnes with. So far, the four-part series has shoveled out Barnes’ ties to a notorious massage parlor owner, her history as a sex therapist, her attendance record on the Jackson County Legislature in the ’70s and on other commissions and Sprint Center suite seats bought on the cheap from a local law firm.
The Kansas Meadowlark wonders whether George Brett will even show up to vote against electing judges Tuesday. The Meadowlark is betting no, given that the Royals legend — and noted robo caller — has only voted once in the past seven years.
Johnson County Commissioner and Burger King franchisee David Lindstrom could be an “October surprise” thanks to a nasty mailer from Kansas Club for Growth, muses Life in SoJoCo. Life in SoJoCo also has plenty of photos of the Burger King rubbing down a bikini girl on the beach.
OK, back to work.
