I'm lucky I'll be out of the state on Tuesday, since I get to early vote in Missouri because of that.

How does a system that relies on painted lines operate in the winter?
Poorly.
Also, what kind of proximal investment does a painted line attract vs. a fixed rail when the lines can be repainted a few blocks away or erased very cheaply?

Also the reason HIllary lost to Trump wasn't because she was old and establishment, it was because she was Hillary Clinton.
That said, I think old and establishment would be a mistake vs. Trump in 2020. You have to get some of the middle grounders excited about a new direction.

Re: STL MLS proposal resurrection

I could also see the STL ownership wanting to be in the Eastern conference since STL has always considered itself part of the "East." From interactions I've had, there is an aversion to being considered anything in relation to the West other than the gateway to it. They will probably claim a bigger ...

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

Not trying to hijack the thread, but every time I see the beautiful interior of the Mainstreet theater I get depressed that hometown team AMC absolutely nailed the renovation, then sold it, and left downtown. And Alamo moved right in, changing hardly anything, with a lower-rent experience. That sai...

Re: NHL OR NBA, let the message board decide!!

STL is such a soccer town, it's hard to believe they haven't gotten a team yet. I would like to be in same conference as a STL MLS team so we can have a natural geographic rival, but I'm guessing they'd be eastern conference. Tough competition for those last two spots - Detroit, San Diego, Phoenix ...

Re: 2019 Mayor/Council Elections

Can we at least take a minute before talking about the political ramifications of an, obviuously, very tough decision by Jason? This is an unprecedented (or very unusual) action for a huge front-runner to pull out of a campaign. I'm not going to even pretend I can understand the challenges of someo...

Re: Parlor - 1707 Locust

I admire what they are trying to do, and while it isn't "cheap," I didn't find the prices too insulting. Inflation still happens, and if fast food chains like Shake Shack are charging $10+/meal, I don't think these prices are crazy considering they are aiming for a way more unique experience and amb...

Re: American Royal BBQ

I went by one year on a Saturday to see it, they didn't ticket every entrance for some reason. It was absolutely dead. Not even parties going on. There was so much room to actually have something going on. One entire parking garage in the area was empty so it's not like they were short of parking. ...

Re: American Royal BBQ

It never really seemed like a KC Tradition to me. I felt like its always been a "Who u know" event that didn't give a shit about the public or community but if know people in the Royal then its probably amazing. Exactly. Now you can just get a ticket and walk in to the general area. (Could you do t...

Re: KCI Flight Schedule Adjustments

I used to travel to Little Rock for work when there was still a direct flight. It was a Beechcraft 1900 (twin prop) that you had to board via stairs on the apron. It had no bathroom, about 20 seats, and was extremely loud (US Airways). Monday mornings were normally pretty full, but Thursday evenings...

Re: Layoffs at The Star

They have two options. Race to the bottom by cutting costs when the margins won't do, or provide a better product. They have done zero to provide a better product in the last 10+ years, so they are left with dropping elements until they are left with very little to provide. There is no saving this p...

Re: beer.

There was a wine store in the River Market that had beer in the basement and you could do mix/match six packs. I think you can do that at World Market. I'm guessing liquor stores don't want to micromanage their inventory like that if they can avoid it. I'm sure it would be popular, but not sure it ...
