Re: We are getting a new airport!!!

GRID, I remember taking the walking sidewalks when I worked for the IRS many years ago just so that I could admire your incredible shots of KC. I must say that it was the best part of working there. I for one really miss your photos from around town...especially the helicopter ones. You and Eric Bo...

Apparently Loar is looking for....In-A-Tub inside the airport? What the hell does she mean about "living North"?

Re: We are getting a new airport!!!

I was looking at the new terminal this morning. I am wondering if the inner concourse will have gates on both the east and west sides (like the outer concourse will)? Not much room for jets to maneuver if there are gates on the south east end of the inner concourse with Terminal B still intact. Tha...

Re: COVID19

Hospitals are for profit businesses. As such they run tight on bed usage since it's to their advantage to have each bed filled, for maximum profit. Knowing where Covid patients are being kept is important too, because they're not mixed in with other patients. The ICU may have 9/10 beds filled, but ...

I hate that SWA is our biggest carrier because of the flying experience they provide but that's for another thread
Please elaborate.
Open seating sucks ass, especially if you're traveling with more than two people in your party.

Re: We are getting a new airport!!!

This may be an unpopular opinion, but I'd be just fine if Southwest didn't continue to dominate 2/3 of the flights out of MCI. It's better than no option, but I'd like more competition from the legacy carriers.

Re: "RideKC Next" transit system redesign

I think we have much common ground, Dave. I just hate to see such significant swaths of the city largely ignored, and that goes as you said for East Jack, Johnson, and Wyandotte too. I will admit I don't have an immediate answer to what should be cut to add to the northland, but I think a (relativel...

Re: "RideKC Next" transit system redesign

There will be a major project announced soon that will modernize and expand the existing RideKC Flex services in the Northland. It doesn't make a lot of sense to continue running traditional bus service where the population and job density is low and there's very little infrastructure to support wa...

IRS does use that building year round. It would be a great place for a stadium but it isn't likely to happen.

Re: World Cup 2026 at Arrowhead?

If FIFA cared even a little bit about human rights then they would've pulled the 2022 World Cup out of Qatar years ago. And Russia in 2018. It’s obvious major sports industries only care about human rights abuses, or perceived “abuses”, only when it’s in a first world nation in the west. The olympi...

still not sure why only 25% of the 2 trillion is actually dedicated to Infrastructure though.
Is there something about sewers, pipes, broadband, scholols, energy, and hospitals that you don't consider infrastructure?

Re: New Broadway Bridge

My commute is at 5:45 in the morning so it's only a few minutes longer to go through NKC. I'm not sure how much longer it is during normal commute times. I just don't understand what is gained as a whole by inconveniencing such a large swath of the city by taking away one of four bridges that even p...

Re: New Broadway Bridge

For those proponents of axing any connection to downtown via 169, how are people who live in the western half of the northland supposed to access downtown? If 169 was no longer an option then the only remaining lanes go through NKC or get bottlenecked to a single lane where 29 and 35 merge. Fairfax...

2022 will be a bloodbath for Dems, they are not going to take control of the Senate (and they will lose control of the House). The House will probably be up for grabs, but I'm not sure you've taken a look at the 2022 Senate map. The following currently Democratic held states have senate elections: ...

Or is there going to be an upwards direction to that development to include all of the things that are ...
