A couple weeks ago, I wrote about an article The New York Times wrote on the little town of Treece, Kansas and how it had been exploited by companies and corporations for its lead and zinc and then abandoned. (http://moravings.blogspot.com/2012/05/kansas-corporate-america-and-their.html).
Apparently, it inspired our own Kansas City Star because today, they ran virtually the same article: http://www.kansascity.com/2012/06/01/3638174/life-goes-on.html.
I don't know if it was a guilt trip or professional embarrassment or what.
Maybe the folks at the Star figured, sure those New Yawkuhs beat 'em to the punch but it was "their" story so they should do one.
Kudos to the staff at the Star, though, really. New York City beat you to what should have been your story.
I guess I'll get a Times tomorrow and see what the Star will be bringing me in a few weeks.
Have a great weekend, y'all.
