Who Moved the Airport?

by Pa Rock

It is Thanksgiving Day and I am back in the Ozarks with family.  For that I am truly thankful.  Most of the leaves have turned brown and are on the ground, but a few still cling tenaciously to their branches.  The temperature outside is a crisp, yet delightful, forty degrees.  It is so nice to be out of the monotonous desert of Arizona.

My plane landed at Kansas City International Airport about an hour ago.   Just after touchdown our flight attendant got on the loudspeaker and welcomed us to Kansas.  Then, as if to confirm that she was a graduate of the Arizona public school system, she announced her hope that we all enjoyed our stay in Kansas!

That Brownback feller must be a real go-getter.  Acquiring KCI from Missouri is a major coup!  What's next, Sam, the Kemper Arena  or the Starlight Theatre?

This has been a burr under my saddle for a long time. When talking about Kansas City it confuses the outsiders no end because there are two Kansas Cities, one in Kansas and the big one in Missouri. Being geographically challenged the outsider refers to the first name of the city without regard to the fact that Kansas is also the name of a state. To them we are all the same thing. Maybe that's not such a bad idea. Still it is hard to swallow.
