Kansas City News Stories

Here are some of today's headlines brought to you by Kansas City News:

After her kidneys shut down after the birth of her second child, Kelly Shattuck a young math teacher has been searching for a kidney donor for over a year.

Burglar falls asleep while robbing a home in Wichita, Kansas. A homeless man was busy robbing a home in Southwest Wichita on Saturday when he decided he needed a shower and then a little nap. While this is completely understandable for a homeless person, it is not such a great idea if you're also a burglar on the job. The owners of the house came home to find the burglar sleeping in their bed, the burglar quickly tried to put on some clothes that belonged to the man of the house but eventually ended up hiding in the closet where Wichita police found him minutes later.

Kansas City Airport Bomb Scare on the 10th Anniversary of September 11th. Former New York City Police officer, 45 year old Anthony Falco, Jr., was going through security at MCI airport on Sunday morning around 9:30am when airport security asked Mr. Falco if they could open up his carry on bag to search it. Falco told them that they could not search his bag and naturally airport security immediately detained Mr. Falco and found a mysterious device in his carry on bag. It was later determined that the mysterious items found were only spare computer parts and were not bomb related. Terminal B at Southwest Airlines was shut down for several hours while airport security, FBI agents, bomb sniffing dogs and other law enforcement officials redirected passengers waiting to board and go through security, causing several delays in flights on Sunday, September 11th.

Chiefs former offensive lineman Brian Waters signed by the New England Patriots. 34 year old offensive line veteran Brian Waters left the Kansas City Chiefs in the off season, went home to work on his retirement plans and possibly do a little work on his lawn when he got a call from The New England Patriots. Waters was a part of what was arguably the best offensive line in Kansas City Chiefs history during the 90's and early 00's. It was reported that Waters left the Chiefs after butting heads with new head coach Todd Haley. In a recent interview Waters was asked if it was difficult leaving the Chiefs, "not really" was his response. September 13th, 2011 Kansas City News

Where Do Chiefs Players Land in the NFL Top 100

The NFL has announced its top 100 going into 2011, and the list includes several Chiefs players. Kansas City has a total of five players on the list, which is tied for fifth most in the NFL. There are two teams in the league that do not have any players on the list.

There are several picks that make sense, most notably Eric Berry being listed at 93. Berry showed a lot of promise as a rookie, and should be even better next season. Guard Brian Waters checks in at 67, which seems about right for the reliable offensive lineman.

There has been some controversy with Tamba Hali's ranking, as most Chief fans felt he should be much higher on the list. Hali came in at number 64, a ranking that seems a bit low considering he is one of the best pass rushers in the league. Despite registering 14.5 sacks last year for a division winner, the Chiefs' pass rush specialist continues to fly under the radar. Hopefully another monster year will result in Hali getting the recognition he deserves.

Jamaal Charles and Dwayne Bowe are the other two Chiefs players who will be listed in the higher rankings.

Hand Washing Lessons at Arrowhead Stadium, Chiefs Sign Wide Receiver Curtis

There seems to be a flu-like illness making its way through the Chiefs locker room. Wide Receiver Dwayne Bowe missed practice on Wednesday due to an illness (he was back on Thursday), and Guard Brian Waters missed practice Wednesday and Thursday (no word on availability for the game Sunday). This has the Chiefs coaching staff worried. A hand washing mini-seminar was given to the players this week. Soap and warm water, at least two minutes - "Kindergarten Rules" as Coach Todd Haley put it. Let's hope the new training keeps the Chiefs players healthy for the big Playoff game with Baltimore on Sunday - we need all the help we can get.

In other Chiefs news, Wide Receiver Kevin Curtis was signed by the team as a little help for a struggling Receiving corps. The Chiefs have had problems all season at receiver - after Bowe, the depth chart drops off considerably with a has been and a couple of never will Be's. Curtis had a great 2007 season with the Eagles, but has been plagued by injuries ever since - including a bout with Testicular cancer in 2010. Could be a long term solution at Receiver if he can return to his past abilities.

Jason Whitlock is a big, fat, racist idiot!!

As an avid Chiefs fan, I was searching for some information on training camp this morning and happened across an article by Jason Whitlock in the Kansas City Star. The article started out mainly focused on Larry Johnson and his ability to overcome his past. It went on to talk about Brian Waters and his botched meeting with the new management team and how it was the fault of management. At the end of the article I realized something I have always known. While Jason Whitlock certainly has an opinion that he voices quite well, at the end of it all, he is a big, fat, racist idiot.

While penning the article he starts by tugging at the reader's human desire for forgiveness. He then goes on to talk about how anyone would do what Larry Johnson has done. Um, Jason, the only thing Larry Johnson and I have in common is we both grew up in nice middle class neighborhoods. I have no tattoos. I don't make a multi-million dollar salary that I don't earn. And by the way, I have never hit or been accused of hitting a woman...on multiple occasions. Where there is smoke there is usually fire.

Jason goes on to explain how poorly Chiefs General Manager, Scott Pioli, and Chiefs Head Coach, Todd Haley, handled the meeting with Brian Waters by basically ignoring him. I have news for Jason and Brian. You do not show up in town unannounced, walk into your bosses office, and demand to be seen and expect to be respected for it. Especially, when your mission is to tell your bosses how to do their jobs. Yeah. They had a couple of other things going on in preparing for the draft and wrapping their brain around a new town, a new organization, and a new season. Message: the inmates are not running the asylum anymore at 1 Arrowhead Drive.

Throughout the article and, when you come right down to it, through his career, Jason has played the part of devil's advocate. Following the lead of such media moguls as Rush Limbaugh, Jason actually enjoys writing and talking about his jaded, one-sided opinion that has very little logic and even less of an ability to understand the opinion of others. He writes and says things just to get a response out of people. I guess that is good for the media, but I would also prefer that you also care about that opinion.

At the end of the day, beneath the hollow, but strongly argued opinions, Jason basically is full of shit. Moreover, most of what he does is lobbying for black millionaire they need it. Much like our current president, he runs to the rescue of black people and then finds the facts afterward. Ordinarily, I wouldn't care, but he tends to hide his real opinion behind his talented style of writing. Want to hear the voice of the real Jason Whitlock? Tune in when he takes over the Jim Rome show. There is nothing good in it which is why they kicked his ass off both Kansas City Sports talk shows.

Jason Whitlock is not a figure that Kansas City should be proud to be represented by in the world. If someone actually takes the time read or listen to the crap he shovels out they will immediately think of our city as racially charged and full of shit. Overall, I do not believe that to be the case. I like my city and I don't care for it being represented by a big, fat, racist idiot!
