Re: Slate: Why St. Louis should move to Illinois

It also comes down to education. A large part of the rural population doesn't advance past a high-school education--if that. In fact, in a lot of areas, the anti-education sentiment is very high, as well as the resentment factor. This is the hotbed of the anti-science, anti-intellectualism streak t...

Re: Slate: Why St. Louis should move to Illinois

There is a troubling trend in many states where state legislatures are prohibiting cities from enacting their own laws on many issues. Despite my previous point, I don't deny this either. Perhaps a side effect of cities progressing faster than their rural counterparts (including the trend of people...

Re: Slate: Why St. Louis should move to Illinois

The funny thing is that many southern Illinois residents would rather be Missouri ones. And as mentioned, having STL join Illinois would not work in its favor. The issue with this city-state dream is that it's not like KC and STL are unique among American cities or even those in other countries; I c...

Re: Is KC a hit among millenials?

The only issue I'm seeing is that the same people I know who enthusiastically move to urban KC also will flat-out say that they don't plan on staying, but instead plan to move on to places like Austin or the coasts (usually the west) once they get enough money. Granted, they are young and still rela...

Re: Ferguson, Missouri

It looks like the whole militarization of the police force thing is something that many on the right (at least libertarian right) and left seem to agree upon as counterproductive. These police seem to be completely out of control. Where the heck is Gov. Nixon with the Missouri National Guard? Where ...

Re: Jewish Community Center shootings

While the state doesn't have any hate crime laws, there's a chance of federal charges being filed.

On another note, I noticed that a couple articles are saying "'Kansas City' shootings".

Re: Washington Sq Park between Crown Center/Union Station

The blocks surrounding the park are pretty well maxed out every direction except immediately north. That parking lot to the north is its only hope, and sadly building something here would destroy the city view from this park, which is outstanding. Also, the train tracks just north of that lot don't...
