  1. The other day I listened to your podcast about Nick Civella and the Teamsters in Kansas City. You mentioned Stanton Gladden. This brought me back to a somewhat funny story from my childhood. My dad was on the Raytown Fire Protection District Board in the mid 1960s. I was about 9 or 10 years when Stanton worked to organize the Raytown fire department to join Local 42. One of the labor negotiations was held at my home and Stanton was there. My mom, a sister and myself had to stay back in another room so we did not hear the negotiations. But after the meeting and the other board members and Stanton left, my parents saw that Stanton left his brief case. We all knew about that a bomb had gone off in Stanton’s car. My sister who was about 16 or 17 at the time and I just knew there was a bomb in the brief case! We were scared to death, but my parents weren’t. The next day he came and retrieved his briefcase–and 50 years later I’m still here to relate the story! Keep up the work, Gary!

    1. Bill, Thank you for your interest. The Stanton Gladden story is great. Today, young folks would find it hard to believe how much the mob touched lives in KC.

      1. Thank you, Gary. You are right. But I am glad that young persons and future generations will not have to experience the effects of organized crime on Kansas City, at least to the extent it existed from the 1920s to 1990s.

        1. I agree, most folks don’t understand how they corrupted the business and government institutions for their own ends.
