Kansas City is the 9th-best U.S. metropolitan area to retire in, according to a ranking conducted by Sperling’s Best Places.
Right behind 1. Minneapolis; 2. Boston; 3. Pittsburgh; 4. Cleveland; 5. Denver; 6. Milwaukee; 7. San Francisco and 8. Portland. Which brings us to…
The TOP FIVE REASONS KANSAS CITY IS A GREAT PLACE TO RETIRE:
#5. If you fall and break your hip in Westport, you’re just another patron.
#4. You can usually find a comfortable mattress on the side of the highway.
#3. The entire city drives 20 miles per hour in the passing lane.
#2. The highlight of everyone’s day is taking a nap.
#1. You have no risk of heart attacks from attending exciting playoff games.
The National Federation of Republican Women met in Kansas City and cast their vote for Herman Cain, the African-American Republican candidate. Cain won overwhelmingly with 49 percent of the vote. The next closest had 14 percent. I’m going to paraphrase Charles Barkley: You know times have changed when the best rapper is white and the leading Republican candidate is black.
While in town Cain said New Jersey governor Chris Christie was "too liberal" to be the Republican nominee for president. Christie’s "too libera"l alright, too liberal with mayonnaise.
