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?
