Somewhere, over the rainbow, a blog is born. A blog for Kansas. A blog for America. A blog by a reporter with a difficult-to-pronounce last name. But most importantly, a blog that is AMERICA'S ONLY PLACE dedicated to the vital intersection of politics and Sunflowers. The Heartland gods nod in wise approval.

Rick James

I just want to note that I was at my desk, sipping a Diet Coke, when I heard the news that Rick James had died. I'm fixing the image in my mind, since I'm sure that everyone will remember where they were when they learned the "Super Freak" belonged to the ages.

Poor guy. Doomed to eternity as a pop-cult punchline.
