Re: Politics

Is it just me or is the media basically guaranteeing another Trump win? Mainly because all the media focuses on is AOC and Omar, i don't disagree with any of them say, i just think they need to be slowly introduced and the house/senate needs more of them if they want to get any policies changed but ...

Re: Strawberry Hill Renaissance

I don't think it's gonna be the new crossroads but I do feel likes it a very attractive area to young professionals that want to buy a starter homes at a very affordable price. I love Strawberry Hill and would definitely consider living there. If I had just moved here and wanted to buy a house I wou...

Re: American Century Championship - Golf

Gotcha, after reading more about it they say its like the "super bowl" of celebrity sports events. I don't really know much about the event. Just seemed odd that the sponsor and official charity of the event were both KC companies

American Century Championship - Golf

I know this is just a sponsorship deal but I never understood why this local company hosts a nationally televised celebrity golf tournament where money is donated to a local KC based company (Stowers) but the event is held in Lake Tahoe. As the main sponsor you would think they would have some pull ...

Its funny how real estate works, people in the burbs hate it when density comes in with new apartments, lower income types start moving in because they say it will hurt property values. Lower income people hate it when gentrification comes in there neighborhood with increasing density, building new ...

Re: Sprint sale rumors again

If this merger goes thru it leaves us with basically 4 left but the 4th is pretty small in US Cellular. Wonder if they would try to expand out this way if the merger happens. US Cell will eventually need to expand or merge

I would assume about 2-3% of that 16% is structured and it's mainly in the downtown area, medical center area, and around the galleria

Re: Urbanism, architecture, transit, strawmen, etc.

I would assume Galvaston Bay and any bodies of water are included in that 10,000 square miles, wouldn't you have to subtract bodies of Water? Good catch. 8930 sq miles of land. So parking is 1.6% of land area. That is also just the space, what about all the road and curb that is created to get to t...

BBQ - Texas vs KC Style

I thought this was an interesting article but it makes me wonder is KC BBQ pretty non-existent on a global scale (Did it ever reach mainstream globally) and has it been surpassed by Texas BBQ? I feel like Franklin BBQ and all the other BBQ places in Central Texas made BBQ very hip/trendy and all the...

Re: Missouri Amtrak Service

Because there's nothing between here and there. Pretty simple. Colorado is focused on their I-25 corridor and I-70 within the state. Doesn’t SW Chief go through KS to south CO? Why doesn’t it just go to Denver. Would at least double that routes traffic immediately. You would loose the Boy Scouts tr...
