Starbeams: Thanksgiving in Manhattan, Chiefs Slay Fan, ‘Lincoln” & ‘Twilight’

This week I’m giving thanks I’m not a K-State fan!

*******

The Chiefs are KILLING us!  Loren Lickteig of Grandview passed away Wednesday.  His obituary reads, “He died due to complications of MS, and heartbreaking disappointment caused by the Kansas City Chiefs!” That”s the reason fans were wearing so much black to the game Sunday…they all had funerals to attend.

*******

A new survey by AAA shows 43.6 million Americans will travel more than 50 miles Wednesday.
The survey also shows, if AAA wasn’t so busy conducting surveys, maybe they could provide more prompt roadside assistance.

*******

The new UMKC Chancellor received the Henry Bloch Human Rights Award Leo Morton has a history of knocking down racial barriers.  For example, last Saturday he convinced a handful of African-American students to attend the Bruce Springsteen concert.

*******

Israelis and Palestinians are firing rockets at each other and the death toll continues to rise as  both sides dig in their heels.  It’s a shame they won’t turn to America, the land of the free, as a source of inspiration. Take the President and Congress for example….

*******

The new Twilight movie made over $141 million on opening weekend in the U.S.  Meaning that Mayan prediction was about a month off.

*******

Residents from all 50 states have filed petitions to secede from the United States.  Thank goodness that Lincoln movie opened over the weekend!

*******

President Obama is in Asia.  Monday he made a speech to a university in Myanmar.  He says his biggest second-term goal is to visit all the countries where his dad got some action.

    I guess the unfortunate passing of Mr. Lickteig, an ardent but disillusioned Chiefs fan, gives new meaning to the old Cold War expression “better dead than red.”

    “He died due to complications of MS, and heartbreaking disappointment caused by the Kansas City Chiefs!”

    – and boredom… the autumn wind may be a Raider – 42 winters of discontent be a Chief. The face of an epidemic; cobweb-covered patrons a government office line waiting to see which arrives first, rescue or demise…
