Like most Kansas Citians, I'm an expert on barbecue, jazz and links golf. With one sniff I can differentiate between hickory-smoked and apple-smoked spareribs. From a single riff I can name Count Basie as the pianist on a 78-rpm recording of the Bennie Moten Orchestra. But to really get me going, you have only to ask how the gorse at England's Rye Golf Club compares with that of Scotland's Western Gailes Golf Club. I'll answer in a word or a treatise, as time allows.
