Re: GO CHIEFS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not to give a pass to players involved in domestic or other violent behavior, but surely there's some correlation between that and the health ramifications in question. Which just makes it (football in general) worse, really.

Re: GO CHIEFS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Assuming this happened, which I have little reason to doubt unless the witnesses are just flat-out lying, a dude who plays on a team literally named a racial slur derived from a particular race's skin tone got called a different racial slur derived from a particular race's skin tone. 2017, folks.

Re: Kentucky 2017

I think it's most likely a demand thing. Anecdotally, many people in Missouri (and most people in general who aren't really "wine people" or are just getting into it) seem to prefer sweeter wines.

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

I didn't remove the posts, but there is no question that posting that kind of stuff, especially in the context of railing against someone you feel has done wrong and gone unpunished, can easily be perceived--and has been perceived in many cases--as an invitation to harassment, at minimum. I probably...

Re: Unbuilt KC

It was supposed to be Bernstein-Rein's new HQ, and it started being built as a Moshe Safdie design, then the developer got in a fight with JE Dunn over something or other and construction stopped and the partially-built structure sat for a few years before being sold, torn down, and rebuilt to house...

Re: Amazon searching for second HQ

Pipe dreaming a bit, but if we were to score Amazon and get the airport done, I have to think there'd be sufficient demand (and the newfound logistical feasibility) to support direct flights to international destinations. This could end up being a monumental confluence of events in the history of KC...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

That may be true, but I personally never cared as much about where the money came from as I did the fact that the whole thing seemed like a revenue grab from the beginning. I don't think people care as much about whether it is a tax as they do that it may be being collected under false pretenses, pe...

He seems about as ideologically anti-downtown KC as a person can be, preaching to a choir of similar misguided voices over on KC Confidential. "Screw downtown, don't spend any money on it! Let it rot! Except you didn't, and now I think I can make money there because of all the things you did th...

Re: Eclipse

Totality was short here, and a bit cloudy, but I managed to get a phone shot: http://i.imgur.com/TWVyie6.jpg

I guess it's not really totality, it never actually got completely dark, but whatever. It looks kinda neat.
