Re: Property Tax Assessments 2019

My assessed value went down. I'm not sure whether to be happy or sad.

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

For the record, I said nothing about a ban or anything. I just don't want to see anyone get mangled by an Escalade or have their skull split open on a curb, for their sake and mine.

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

Nice to have them off the sidewalks where people apparently just kick them over in disgust or something. Can kinda understand the sentiment after almost being mowed down by a scootering couple while walking down the sidewalk along Baltimore the other day. I wholeheartedly approve of eroding relianc...

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

I see an awful lot of other illegal stuff happen every day, too. If only things being illegal actually stopped people from doing them! Gosh, what a world that would be.

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

Yeah, it's really rampant and super annoying, but I guess it beats blocking the streetcar, which is only slightly less rampant and even more annoying.

Re: Making downtown more pedestrian friendly

Would it be cool? Sure! Is it an insult to the LGBTQ community and a wholesale rejection that they are normal humans deserving of love and respect if we don't immediately do it? Kinda, no. These are hills I would never die on, but I do hope we manage to reach some place of sanity around these issues...

Re: Three Light

That is a lot better than I feared. Not that I cared as much as some of us, but it's still nice to see them mix it up a little.

Re: Parlor - 1707 Locust

When I was actively playing music and touring around to the east, there was an awful lot of White Castle consumed. While I can agree with that, I can add: do not leave a bunch of unconsumed White Castle in the van overnight.

Re: Parlor - 1707 Locust

I'm skeptical. I have an irrational love of sliders, and I don't really think there's any need for them to be "gourmet-ified". I would take a cozy burger with American cheese for a buck every time over something with gruyere and fried onion straws or whatever at over three times the price. In most r...

Ahh, gotcha, just the food court. I didn't realize the gyro place was still there, and didn't even know there was a Chinese place! Shows how much attention I pay.

Jason's Deli and the weird little taco place whose name I can't remember... what else is there? Are you counting Domino's?

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

Is it just me, or does the pride wrap evoke MARTA?

Also, just figured I'd preempt the "BUT I THOUGHT IT WAS A STRAIGHTCAR! LULZ" jokes. It's not that funny (ok, it's a little funny).

Re: Next Mayor 2019

I'm not following this race very closely, it seems to me that we have two good options and I don't really care that much, but just so I'm clear on the current rag dynamic: is the poster people were lambasting as a racist elsewhere basically the only person rooting for the black guy to win? Or have I...
