John Sellars is our special guest, describing something crazy from our city's past that he lived through--the great cobra scare of Springfield, MO, which happened during the blistering summer of 1953. The back story actually took 40 years to come to light, and there is nobody better than Sellars, the head of the Springfield History Museum, to shed some light on this memorable tale.

The story is reported by Allison Green.
