I was interested in an article about the death of a man whose body was found in a burned home. The fire was not the cause of the death.

Having satisfied myself the police were on the case, I noticed a bit of material not related to the article I was reading, so I scrolled down and found something interesting hanging below the original article:

K.C. Monarchs baseball

PARSONS — Parsons Public Library will host “The Kansas City Monarchs in Our Hometown,” a presentation and discussion by Phil S. Dixon, at 2 pm Thursday, July 23, in the library multi-purpose room.  

Formed in 1920, the Kansas City Monarchs revolutionized baseball. Not only were they charter members of the Negro National League and the first professional team to use outdoor lighting, but also the Monarchs sent more players to the major leagues than any other Negro League franchise. Dixon’s presentation will explore the early barnstorming days of the Monarchs and highlight great players such as Wilbur “Bullet” Rogan, Satchel Paige and Jackie Robinson.

I didn’t know that.

Why is learning something new fun when it is accidental and a bore if someone forces one to learn.

About tenwhiskey

User tenwhiskey is also the author of this blog. He currently lives in small town Kansas in a semi-retired condition. His kids are married and gone (thank you). An empty nester. Divorced. Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.
