Sure, there were 62 murders in Kansas City up to today.
And that's 4 over the count at this time last year, right.
But today, everything changed.
Prior to today, not much was said or done about people dying in Kansas City because, frankly, they were mostly African-Americans.
And that's sad.
But today, a woman from the Kansas Department of Education was killed.
The fact that it's a woman will add to the troubles.
The fact that she's Caucasian will make bigger news.
The fact that it happened as she was leaving Starlight Theater will really make it much bigger news.
Finally, the fact that she was from Kansas will also add to the situation.
I can see the headlines in the Kansas City Star newspaper tomorrow morning now. It's going to be big and right on the front page.
And that will just be the beginning.
