A downtown stadium for the Royals is now a front burner issue. John Sherman, who leads the Royals ownership group, went public with the idea last month, and now it's out there for everyone to consider. Where would it be built? How much would it cost and who gets the tab? What becomes of Kauffman Stadium, and does the popular Royals ballpark even need to be replaced? Those questions and more are explored in a Kansas City Star series of stories by columnist Sam Mellnger, beat writer Lynn Worthy and reporter Blair Kerkhoff and in this special edition of the SportsBeat KC podcast.

In 1904, adventure novelist H. Rider Haggard awoke from a dream with the conviction that his daughter's dog was dying. He dismissed the impression as a nightmare, but the events that followed seemed to give it a grim significance. In this week's episode of the Futility Closet podcast we'll describe Haggard's strange experience, which briefly made headlines around the world. We'll also consider Alexa's expectations and puzzle over a college's name change. Intro: Marshall Bean got himself drafted by reversing his name. An air traveler may jump into tomorrow without passing midnight. "Bob, although he belonged to my daughter, who bought him three years ago, was a great friend of mine, but I cannot say that my soul was bound up in him," Haggard wrote. "He was a very intelligent animal, and generally accompanied me in my walks about the farm, and almost invariably came to say good morning to me."

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day for September 7, 2021 is: suborn suh-BORN verb Suborn means "to persuade (someone) to do something illegal (such as to lie in a court of law)." It can also mean "to obtain (false testimony) from a witness by persuasion." // The lawyer attempted to suborn the witness. // The prosecutor was guilty of suborning false testimony. See the entry > Examples: "Because suborning perjury is not a mistake, nor is suppressing evidence. These acts are intentional." — Melinda Henneberger, The Kansas City Star, 13 Nov. 2020 Did you know? Suborn is from Latin subornare, which translates literally as "to secretly furnish or equip." The sub- that brings the "secretly" meaning to subornare more commonly means "under" or "below," but it has its stealthy meaning in the etymologies of several other English words, including surreptitious (from sub- and rapere, meaning "to seize") and the verb suspect (from sub- or sus- and specere, meaning "to look at"). The ornare (meaning "to furnish") of subornare is also at work in the words ornate, adorn, and ornament.

Watching Joe Biden stumble around, actually unfit for office, proves that while America is great... there is a real weakness in a democracy. The name Black Bob is officially ok to use as the Kansas City Star points out it was the name of the man who led the Shawnee "Indians" in the Olathe area. Wait, I thought "Indian" had been cancelled by the Star? And Black Bob is ok? So hard to keep score on these things. Even honey badgers get Covid as Tyrann Mathieu tests positive. Forget football, you fools, let's pray that he's going to be ok and live a normal life someday. The Big 12 releases a statement of solidarity that is lame. If they really want to make a statement, we have a perfect suggestion.

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day for August 3, 2021 is: berate bih-RAYT verb : to scold or condemn vehemently and at length Examples: "Don't berate yourself over canceling plans," the lifestyle expert said. "It is sometimes more important that you allow for time to take care of yourself." "During Russell's tirade Wednesday, he didn't shout at any particular player, but his team as a whole. 'I would never single someone out and berate them,' Russell said." — Shaun Goodwin, The Kansas City Star, 17 June 2021 Did you know? Berate and rate can both mean "to rebuke angrily or violently." This sense of rate was first recorded in the 14th century, centuries before the familiar (and etymologically unrelated) rate meaning "to estimate the value of." We know that berate was probably formed by combining the prefix be- and the older rate, but the origins of this particular rate itself are somewhat more obscure.
