Layoffs at The Kansas City STAR Didn't Go Far Enough

It seems every time there's a layoff at The STAR- the corporate news-sheet always misses the deadest weight.

For months it seems- STAR editorialist dead-weight Yael T. Abouhalkah has been droning ON and ON about how lousy Mayor Funkhouser is.

I'll be damn if he's in this morning's paper still bitching about Funk.

Funkhouser is the man The STAR supported last mayorial election.

CSW urged Abouhalkah to run for mayor himself a couple of months ago- since the man seems to know JUST what kind of new mayor Kansas City needs.

So The STAR should urge Yael T. Abouhalkah to run for mayor himself- or AT LEAST- give the man a leave of absence until AFTER the election and give their readers a break....

Steve Rose would probably just take his place and nothing would change.

Didn't Rose run for an office once (I think he withdrew too)?

At LEAST he put his hat in the ring rather than just talking into it.

Johnson County Sun publisher Steve Rose, a Republican, told The Star Wednesday that he's in the race for the 3rd District seat that incumbent Democrat Dennis Moore has held for six terms

Steve Rose withdraws from his bid for Congress app 10 days after throwing his hat into the ring. He claims health problems brought on by the stress of the campaign caused his Crohn's Disease to flare up. 9/25/09

As for an excuse, guess we have to take it.

I for one feel it had more to do with waking up one morning and reality slapping him upside the head and said, you will become the laughing stock of Kansas City and the state of Kansas if you go on with this campaign, so pull out now. And that he did.

Ah yes-

Thanx for the clarifications Superdave!

Those who can- run.

Those who can't- join newspaper editorial boards!
