MSNBC - August, 20, 2009 - Kansas City’s Gangster Tour starts at Union Station, where bullet holes from the infamous 1933 Kansas City Massacre can still be seen. On a 90-minute bus tour from there, “Johnny Holiday” shares stories about “Boss Tom” Pendergast and points out where speakeasies and gambling halls once operated, where mobsters once lived and worked and where major turf wars and infamous crimes took place.
