Re: KCI Flight Schedule Adjustments

^ Was surprised neither flew to Denver. Looks like most European flights from there are Norwegian Air. Interesting.

Re: Politics

Pretty much. I believe we need to monitor it and perhaps limit it at some point. I believe it should be regulated to the extent we can keep out terrorists, weapons and narcotics. However, I have yet to see any evidence that we have reached some crisis stage of immigration. So, yeah - citizenship fo...

How are we not, indeed. Good point. We should be.
So, the path for anyone to get US citizenship is merely putting a foot in the soil?

And what do we leave for those who want a successful Honduras country?

Re: Politics

This is simply a humanitarian crisis being exploited by the right. But, aren’t they out of crisis once they leave Honduras? Wouldn’t Guatemala, El Salvador and Mexico be required to take them before the US? Sure, they would have more economic opportunity here, but wouldn’t that then be an economic ...

Neither of those fly to mid sized airports so I doubt we see either one of those. I think it is more likely to be Delta if it is a legacy type airline.
Delta hub in Europe is Paris, correct? So, would get Air France connections to ME and Africa.

They started a pretty significant looking mural on the south side of the garage this week. Looks to be a city skyline.

Re: Rankings, lists, and such

Plus the republican party has changed drastically in the last 10-20 years. A moderate conservative in Reagan's era was most likely a republican. A moderate conservative today may have second thoughts about supporting a party that is as extreme as the republican party has become. The vast majority o...

Re: Politics

Why do we think America should take the best from every poor country in the world? Instead of exporting freedom and democracy to Honduras, we are taking their best...those who have the strength of character and mental fortitude to travel over 1000 miles for just a chance at a new life. I know that w...

Re: Politics

Republican and Democrat brands have a lot of baggage. More people are identifying as Independent and Progressive. That’s likely part of the change in numbers.

Looks much better with the scaffolding gone, especially the south side. North side looks kind of European utilitarian.
There’s a ‘business in the front...’ joke in there somewhere.

It looks like they’re getting ready to residewalk and pave 19th as well after the main structure at Corrigan is done. Will there be bike lanes there too?

Everyone is complaining about the tan brick. If you don’t like it, walk around to the south end. It’s dark gray cladding.

Re: Tension Envelope Building

This building has been coming up a lot in conversation. I don't think they're quite ready to sell, but someone's advising them. Key piece to connect East Crossroads to 18th & Vine. Would be a difficult project just to empty the building but could be huge payoff in the end. Goodwill building just to...

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

I would rather it sell individually. With one owner they can do one project at a time and it takes forever. Commerce has deep pockets and owns a lot of land and hasn't developed everything after decades. I’ve found that when companies hold few properties they tend to hold them for a bigger return. ...

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

They will probably be under a lot of pressure to reduce the price the longer it sits, because there are activist shareholders who are demanding DST sell their real estate, and return to their core mission only. I think the best hope would b a full divestiture of all their property in one sale. The ...
