An answer and question session on the TV game show "Jeopardy!" has the mayor of Kansas City, Kan., asking why his town is being neglected. The Kansas city was referred to on the show as merely a suburb of the larger Kansas City, Mo., and Kansas City, Kan. Mayor Joseph E. Steineger Jr. telephoned "Jeopardy!" producer George Vosburgh to complain. "This city has sat in the shadows long enough," Steineger told reporters this week. "The people that live in this town are so tired of being put down by anybody or anything. Kansas City, Kansas, is a city. It's not a suburb of anything." Vosburgh said Wednesday that he was sorry, adding that "if I could soothe the ruffled feathers of the entire city, I'll try."
