Re: OFFICIAL - Crossroads Hotel (2107 Central)

The Business Journal says Lazia is reopening Nov. 12. 7 days a week! Big deal for the neighborhood. Few restaurants are open every day. That is pretty amazing. It's been a rude awakening in regards to post-covid hours (I know, we're not really post-covid!). And that's not even factoring in spot clo...

Re: GO CHIEFS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, but once upon a time when the O pressed it worked. Third and long in a desperate situation? Touchdown! Repeatedly. Kinda got used to that, and it was probably not a fair expectation was my point. Defenses have adjusted, not allowing big plays. Force the Chiefs to make consecutive short plays....

The D is bad (again), so the O is pressing.

Re: Hotel Bravo- 17th and Wyandotte

I agree, I would like to see it move forward, but have no confidence in a group that is completely tone deaf and oblivious to prevailing winds.

Re: Phase Three Streetcar Expansion

I guess someone will have to define "suburb" and also how to get KS to contribute to a regional tax without including "suburbs".

Re: COVID19

But then Trump went and lost MI, WI, and PA in 2020 by the same margin (or more) that he won in 2016. Meanwhile seemingly safe red states like AZ and GA go blue. I would argue that Trump's wave crested in 2016 and he will bet beat by a bigger margin in 2024. I would not argue that. The margins were...

Re: COVID19

I don't want to go full political data here, but this last part isn't true at all. White working class voters that Trump brought in, instead of upper class voters, demographically benefits the GOP more and expands the electoral college & Senate for GOP. It took the Dems most moderate candidate to b...

There are so many other options, even in the chicken world!, why would a bid group take even the smallest risk to back CFA?

Easiest decision that executive ever made.

I heard they’re going to replace it with something local- so how is that a bad thing for us?
Because they gave into the SJW crowd when they should have told them to fuck off
You are correct, there is someone in this equation that we should tell to fuck off.

Thank you for posting your beautiful flowers. I wound up in the hospital for two and a half months. I am now bedridden. Neuropathy renders my fingers and hands nearly useless. I will no longer be posting pictures.
I am very sorry to hear this, I hope you get better.

Ever heard of police presence? This is a law enforcement problem. It's just another example of what happens when the City's leadership has no direct control/power over the police department. Are we also going to shut down Main at Pershing, because there's video of cars spinning around at that inter...

It always smelled to me more of then executives choosing a location near their houses for their own personal convenience while dipping into the incentive pool. Sadly, I don't even know if that management team is still working there. Being in Leawood also caused them to lose a visible corporate pres...
