Re: Need cleveland ideas

Is our primary criticism of KC at the moment that we don't have sufficient housing for the excessively rich?

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to North Kansas City

For the record, I argued for a long time before the streetcar existed that expanded bus service (or PRT, of which I was an early advocate) which could actually function to connect people to jobs and whatnot was a better investment than a couple miles of streetcar, and I haven't entirely changed my m...

Re: COVID19

Vaccination doesn't prevent COVID infection. It helps the immune system recognize COVID to fight it off. In most people, vaccination results in a less serious infection, and less likelihood of death from it. The vast majority of hospitalization and deaths now are among unvaccinated. Vaccinated peop...

Re: We are getting a new airport!!!

I don't.

I mean, I hear a vague nonsensical warbling noise reminiscent of the adults in Peanuts cartoons wafting over the background noise of hundreds of people failing to pay any attention.

Re: Whataburger

They've been creeping north along 35 for a while, they've been in OKC, Tulsa, and NW Arkansas. KC was probably inevitable although I think the Mahomes-generated hype may have accelerated expansion plans a bit. I certainly don't think having arguably the largest local celebrity in history tweeting ab...

Re: 2023 KCMO Election

I do question the insistence on a "cultural issue" in the black community regarding "absentee fathers" when we have incarcerated young black men at insane rates, made penalties harsher for crimes young black men ar...

Re: 2023 KCMO Election

I guess it depends on what constitutes your definition of "fighting crime". It sometimes seems this means pulling over poor and/or minority people for the most trivial of infractions and then burdening them with unreasonable fines and fees they can't afford to pay, which, whether that was the intent...

I think Lucas has been fine and would vote for him again. I think the protestors bitching about the police reform stuff are probably mostly completely misinformed and/or conspiracy theorists. Unfortunately, people who are completely misinformed and/or conspiracy theorists also get to vote, but hey, ...

Re: COVID-19 Casualties

I think Grad School would like to come back to KC but are focusing on getting things stabilized in Springfield first. I have no idea if they'll be back to that location or not, but they had to be making it work there, they were always pretty busy. Would suck if they're gone for good, that place was ...

The problem is that while I am annoyed by some others quickness to jump to "OMG U R NAZI" or whatever, you are can be worse as an individual than all of the others collectively. Just chill.

Making contradictory claims, hmmm. I'm not sure who that resembles.

He doesn't know, he said he doesn't know. The point isn't to establish that this is a significant problem, because the experts are pretty clear that it probably isn't.

Yeah, that's basically where I'm at. A playoff appearance would be a huge win relative to my expectations going into the season, which was something like, "Well, they probably won't lose 100+ games this year!"

Re: OFFICIAL - Lightwell (formerly City Center Square)

I was assuming it would replace the one in the New Yorker, which would be a little unfortunate (I love them in that space) but possibly a more prominent location? You know what they say about assumptions though.

Re: KCI Flight Schedule Adjustments

Vangard couldn't survive the 9/11 impact, was doing well before that. The Feds bailed out many airlines but Vangard wasn't included in bailout funds (IIRC). It may have continued on fine and perhaps have grown if it weren't for 9/11. The new terminal will also be more hub friendly, so better condit...
