Re: Downtown Tanners closing?

Hush sounds like a name for a speakeasy in a Stefon sketch on SNL. "KC's hottest club is "Hush," an intimate basement speakeasy that seats 4,000 people amidst the ruins of crying former businesses associates and over 6,000 conceptual drawings for various iterations of the Garment Hous...

That is just insane to me. Keeping people occupied via wifi sounds like the #1 way to improve the customer perception of the long, slow hauls through Iowa with no or intermittent cell coverage.

Re: Do you have or plan to get Google Fiber?

YouTube TV is much better with a few recent improvements. They now have 60 fps for ESPN and a few other sports channels, and they now have an Android app that works well with Shield TV and other products. There is still a ways to go, but I'm closer to shutting down my cable now than I was a few mont...

Re: General Amtrak Discussion

That looks pretty nice. It's been a few years since I've ridden Amtrak, but do they have wifi on all routes yet? It doesn't look like the Southwest Chief does yet, which just boggles my mind.

Re: World Cup 2026 at Arrowhead?

I recently heard something along the lines of "economic impact on host cities is in the billions". Is this true? Probably for all host cities in aggregate. Certainly not for a single host city. It isn't a local team (unless the USA draws your city), so you could potentially have 40 to 60k...

Long long lines at the main Southwest gate this morning at 5:20 am. I would have missed my flight or just barely made it if I weren't TSA pre-check.

Re: Politics

That's probably why Trump has ginned up this story about Mueller and the Uranium One deal, and that the former head of the FBI was (gasp) friends with the next head of the FBI (Comey). The way Trump operates, you don't even need for those stories to make any sense, so long as they plant a seed of do...

Füd appears to have vanished overnight. This time, it looks like it was for good as they removed the glass exterior windows and have the place boarded up.

50th? I never believed Brownback's governing style and tax philosophy would lead to good things, but 50th is literally the worst you can do. Turns out Ayn Rand was an idiot.

Re: KC to STL Hyperloop

I mean it takes 45 minutes to fly to stl and an hour to Chicago. The only way this changes things is if it's just as fast and cheaper. And lacks the airport security theater I guess. Why can't we just invest in our current rail system? I think hyperloop, or even fast rail, could begin competing wit...

Re: Do you have or plan to get Google Fiber?

Google Fiber is not offering TV service in new markets it's entering - Louisville and San Antonio. They are hinting to use OTT streaming services instead like YouTubeTV, Sling, Hulu etc. GF says they'll continue to offer TV in existing markets but would bet they get rid of it next year (that is if ...

Re: Would you like to see the Royals move to a downtown stadium?

I don't get the need for the stadium to be within the downtown loop. I would think you would reserve parcels within the loop for 5-to-7 days-a-week uses year-round instead of a few days each month for just a few months out of the year. A stadium seems to be a downtown-adjacent thing. Good point, bu...

There seems to be no better endorsement of placing a business along the streetcar than an owner of another business along the line wanting to double down.

Re: Amazon searching for second HQ

I don't think the reason for their airport requirements has to do with executive flights. It is more likely related to all of the salespeople, marketing, technical solutions providers, etc., who are not high up enough to command a private jet. They will need varied flights to many international dest...
