Every year, the Royals host several famous Kansas City comedians back from Hollywood to make with the funny and raise some money for charity. (Poetry unintended.)

I contribute a weekly column to the Platte County Landmark under the “Rambling Moron” name. It’s a great Northland Newspaper and well worth a subscription. The following is an copy of my article which appeared in the 6/8/12 edition – printed with permission.
HOW TO CUT DOWN THE INTERNET’S WHITE NOISE
All-Star Week is only a couple of weeks away. You can see where most of the highways have been repaved and I saw a guy picking up cigarette butts downtown today. Looks like the City is getting ready to host the 2012 All-Star Game and all the festivities that go with it.
What are YOU […]

Springfield Cardinals Manager Mike Shildt contacted me Saturday afternoon and we met for a very somber talk at Arvest Ballpark about his actions during an ejection Friday night where a helmet he tossed hit an umpire. Shildt was extremely contrite and apologetic about his actions the night before. “I take full responsibility for my actions,” Shildt […]
UPDATE: SEE UPDATE FOR ADDITIONAL CONTEXT ON INCIDENT.
