Finally, We Are Getting The Attention We Deserve

One of Jamie's fav things to do is to write letters to the editor of the Kansas City Star but they haven't been published. Indeed there are many things that are incredibly frustrating about the Star that warrant letters to the editor, and finally his day has come! There has recently been a three part article about the crime situation in Kansas City that places the blame on a particular zip code and its "culture of violence". We both felt that this was probably not the most constructive use of Kansas City Star resources and that the crime should be attributed to the unnacredited school system and race issues that plague Kansas City. And we got angry! And you know what happens when we get outraged, letters to the editor time! This certain letter to the editor was specifically about the idea to create contrived crime fighting technology. Comon KC Star and City Council’s Public Safety and Neighborhoods Committee, $225,000 to $250,000 per square mile, are you serious? That was it! Enough is enough! Time for a letter to the editor! Jamie carefully crafted several ideas I had about the problem and used his wordsmith skills take all the swears out of my original ideas and make a printworthy letter to the editor.

  1. I had no idea Julia had so much vitriol! I'm being sincere when I say this letter is an inspiration.
