Re: Next Mayor 2019

If they can't get such a minor, "stupid" issue correct.. Then how are you going to be able to trust them to run a city.. To say it more clearly, pulling your support from a candidate over the renaming of a road is stupid. Voting for changing the name of a road is not a sign of incompetence. Politic...

Re: P&L District: 13th & Walnut Site Proposal

Last time we were in town, we stopped in there during the afternoon for lunch and it was dead. There may have been one other person in there. All of downtown KC always feels pretty much dead to me though. It's just the way KC is. But I was surprised how dead the Ice place was. The branding is prett...

Re: Next Mayor 2019

What a stupid issue to pivot on. So many issues facing this city and your going to change your vote over the name of a street? It has nothing to do with the literal significance (or insignificance) of the name change, and everything to do with the disregard for the people's (and their constituents)...

Re: City Center Square for sale

Was LightWell the name of a restaurant on top of the short section? They keep talking about reopening the LIghtWell. Looks open to me if actually a lower case lightwell.

But isn't the airport working out as planned-ish?
It probably is, I more meant that it's an issue that should be examined and would be a good reason to support, or drop support.

Renaming a road is not.

Won't this and the airport be wrapped up together in an "our city's process is broken and corrupt" argument?
The airport? Yes.

Naming a street? Sub-Sub-Minor issue.

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

^i see pros and cons but come on, 81 home games per season is more than just a 'few nights of the year' I’d rather spend a billion on the convention center, which would add more hotel room nights and spin off revenue than a ballpark subsidy. But, hey, I hate the sportsballs. I agree. About the conv...

Ah, er, half the people could walk to a downtown stadium. simple entertainment value for day games and after work. visit other cities with urban stadiums, I mean integrated, urban stadiums, not St Louis.

Re: Hyperloop between KC and STL

The proposed appeal of freight on Hyperloop is the cost per mile is less than trucks or trains, it's not about speed. We will see if that proves out. If it's just less than trucks it would be a huge benefit to the environment and to I-70.

I've been to the Lee's Summit location several times. Foods ok, but I would rate their restaurant skills as amateurish. Kind of a mess, no attention to detail.
