Attorney and film maker Terence O'Malley released his third Kansas City-centered documentary titled "Tom and Harry: The Boss and the President.", In October of this year. I have a copy of the newly released DVD!

The film is about Tom Pendergast and President Truman. It covers a wide-open era of Kansas City in the 1920's and 30's.

Truman's ties to the Pendergast's and the Pendergast Machine were long and deep. The amazing thing about Harry Truman? He never apologized for his association with Tom Pendergast. In fact, he stood defiantly with Tom Pendergast.

    I didn't know you were stepping down from the organizer post, Doreen. Is anyone planning to take over?

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
