    City, unions should improve minority hiring - editorial by Yael T. Abouhalkah, Kansas City Star
    Last week, City Council member Jim Glover said Cauthen again had pledged to pump up oversight of minority hiring programs.

    "Promises are good to hear," Glover said. "But the only thing that's going to work is when you can drive by these sites and see minorities involved."

    Great point. So on Tuesday I took a half-hour walk around the downtown arena, entertainment district and H&R Block sites.

    Of the 48 workers I could clearly see, only two were black.

    Oh, and all 48 were men.
