Seg. 1: MLK Park | Seg. 2: Understanding Arrogance

Segment 1: Kansas City does have something named for Martin Luther King, Junior.

A month after Martin Luther King's name was voted off of a major boulevard, a cleaning effort is underway at a long-neglected park named after the civil rights icon. The park's been dedicated to King since 1978.

Segment 2: A new study from MU reveals three types of arrogance, and six levels of it.
