The Library of Congress has some great photos of cities around the turn of the century. Here is Kansas City in 1907.

Congratulations Galveston!

To the good people of Galveston and surrounding coastal Texas, well done on electing to the actual U.S. Congress a person who would say this:
"The Supreme Court seems to be in collusion with the president and his injustice department."   - Representative Randy Weber

Royals Futility Becoming Unfathomable

Sam Mellinger puts up a few random facts about the Royals current awfulness. Here are a couple of my favorites:
  • The Royals last hit two home runs in the same game on May 10. Forty-three players have done it since. 
  • Royals are now 2-5 (.285) when allowing exactly three runs. The rest of baseball, entering last night, was 158-99 (.615).
I would add to what he has listed that the Royals are even bad by their historical standards, which is bad. They are currently on pace to hit 84 home runs this year. That is 36% less than last year when they tied for last in the American League. Brutal.
