Is Kansas in Missouri?

Kansas and Missouri are separate states, but the good part of Kansas City is in Missouri. Kansas City Missouri has the the Chiefs, the Royals, the zoo, the convention center, the old airport (the new airport is still on the Missouri side, but is not in Kansas City itself), Country Club Plaza, Linda Hall library, the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Children's Mercy Hospital, Union Station, and pretty much anything else anyone not from the area has ever heard of. (The "corner of Twelfth Street and Vine" mentioned in the song was also on the Missouri side, but it only still exists in memorial form in a park; Vine now dead-ends about a block south of Twelfth Street.)

The Kansas side has Oklahoma Joe's BBQ and KU Medical Center. Admittedly one of those is pretty awesome and the other is a medical center.
