Not the sharpest hammer in the Tool Shed

From the Scoot Utopia

How this place has not fallen over on itself or been the scene of a major crime until now is beyond me.

A gunman opened fire outside a Kansas City tavern Thursday night, wounding three people before being disarmed by a bystander.

Police said the gunman opened fire at the Tool Shed bar at U.S. 40 and Phelps Road in extreme eastern Kansas City around 8:40 p.m.

Two of the victims were taken to a hospital, Kansas City police Capt. Mike Perne said. One was in critical but stable condition. Another suffered serious injuries. A third person suffered minor injuries and was treated at the scene.

Positioned in essential a No-Man-Land of crappy East KC and a perpetually dying Southwest Independence, this place always seemed to cater more to the folks at the half-way house/squatters apartments at the Hyline Inn.

I have only been to the Tool Shed once in my life and it was with the same man who uses strippers as his own Garmin. Seriously, how did I live this long?
