99.7 The Point fires back after San Francisco stations ban Lorde’s ‘Royals’ during World Series

Let the silliness begin. Some San Francisco radio stations have banned Lorde’s monster hit, “Royals,” during the World Series. In response, 99.7 The Point in Kansas City announced Sunday that it will play the song “on the hour, every hour, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday.”

Pulling out a close victory over Chargers can be a big boost to Chiefs

The Chiefs got a 23-20 win over the Chargers. They are 3-3, with a tough win on the road, and in the division. They will be favored at home the next two weeks.

Expelled Nazis got millions in Social Security

Former Auschwitz guard Jakob Denzinger lived the American dream. By the late 1980s, he had acquired the trappings of success: a Cadillac DeVille and a Lincoln Town Car, a lakefront home, investments in oil and real estate. Then the Nazi hunters showed up. In 1989, as the U.S. government prepared to strip him of his citizenship, Denzinger packed a pair of suitcases and fled to Germany. Denzinger now lives comfortably, courtesy of U.S. taxpayers. He collects a Social Security payment of about $1,500 each month, nearly twice the take-home pay of an average Croatian worker.

The feud between franchise icon Frank White — who has only recently returned to Kauffman Stadium, as a fan, since his public fallout with the team more than two years ago — and the Royals is petty and unbecoming of each side.
