Tony: Craig Glazer Won The Plaza Riot

Until there is another Plaza riot. The news cycle on this subject has all but stopped. So now it’s time to think logically about the situation instead of just panicing because of the mere thought of African-American teenagers organizing.

Thinking about this episode in Kansas City history what’s clear is that almost nobody scored a decisive victory. The mayor and his wife seemed aloof and disconnected while everyone else just came off as unprepared like total reactionaries.

Except for one dude: Craig Glazer.

Background: Because of my KCC connection I’ve recently had a chance to have a couple of conversations with Glazer and now I can easily see why he’s a recurring theme in Hearne’s writing. The dude is rather interesting as evidenced by the hottie on his arm in the photo adorning this post. However, what impressed me most is the guy’s media savvy.

We’ve all heard him talking about upcoming comics and even in a brief chat with the dude he was plugging an upcoming

    You’ll never be as cool as Craig or Hearne. Just thank Jesu Christo that you get to swim in their wake.

    Let the Glazer circle jerk continue on KC Confidential. I just don’t get it…

    We need to start a “Free Greg Hall” program and get him off this abortion of a website.

    Hey haters, accept it Glazer is the ‘real deal’ so why can’t he continue to be prominent in the news and on this blog. Why so much jealous crap on the guy. What I like most about Craig Glazer, he doesn’t say he’s a role model or hasn’t done anything wrong in life. This guy fesses up, maybe better than anyone I’ve listened too in years. He’s just one of us, who has done a little, tried a bit harder and sticks to his game plan. I used to kinda hate him, now I respect him and enjoy his b.s. Move over radio guys give this man the mic.

    I never much cared for the “Glazers” when they were our neighbors in Westport. But gotta to admit, Craig always ends up with these smokin hot women. His wife was hot too. Guess that ended. He is a good talker. Reminds me of my old boss Randy Kelly, he was a cool dude, down in the Ozarks now.

    What gets lost in all this, is that Tony is right. Glazer, who maybe shoulda been mayor afterall, should be named to head up a fix it group with Police and City counsel. He is right and knows what to do, clearly they don’t.

    By the way I also agreed with Glazer on money being spent to fix the real KC, Plaza,Brookside,Waldo and Westport areas, not downtown.

    Good idea Tony, have Glazer follow Dare on 98.9 or better yet, have Glazer do a REAL political show on KMBZ mornings. Like it.

    So many have drank the Kool-Aid. And when I think of Larry The Cable Guy I think of his bit about a girl passing gas in his face while he is doing 69. That sounds like something that would happen to Craig.
