The Slice

Listening to the radio

Had NPR's “Morning Edition” on while riding the bus and heard an interview subject be described as “a Kansas City rancher.”

Perhaps his spread is in the general vicinity of the Missouri metro. But I find it hard to believe that this guy's ranch is actually in Kansas City.

I suspect someone simply forgot the word “area.”

But you never know when someone on one of the coasts actually believes that all life here in flyover country is essentially rural.
