Re: GenZ (aka iGen)

Other notable tidbits from same study. * Of the portion no longer attending high school, 59% were enrolled in college last year. That’s a jump from the 53% college enrollment rate among millennials in 2002 and an even bigger jump from the 44% of Gen Xers in 1986. * Just 13% are growing up in rural a...

Re: Amenities missing from downtown

Xroads looks to be getting a couple more grocers. A couple bookstores have opened up this year.

What amenities have you seen in other downtowns you'd like to see DTKC?

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

Would think Lime will also need to arrange dedicated parking for airports, which would probably be a popular use especially in KC (not having effective public transit to airport).

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

Lime is launching per minute car share in Seattle. Can rent via same app as scooters. "Rides in the LimePod will cost $1 to unlock the car and 40 cents per minute of use." ($24/hr) So under $15 for airport run from Plaza if no traffic, less from downtown. https://techcrunch.com/2018/11/13/lime-is-de...

Re: Politics

KS has a history of DEM governors that has never translated to DEM senators let alone a DEM president. KS will vote Trump in 2020. Difference being that KS is moving away from GOP identity per links a few posts back, ranking top 5 of all states in past now it's middle of pack, lower than MO. KS app...

Re: Politics

Right, not growing blue identity but 'going blue' when GOP is extreme and more moderate DEM candidates are an option. KS looks to be moving away from GOP identity, not necessarily toward DEM identity and appears to be going for moderate candidates at this point. And if there is a moderate GOP vs mod...

Missouri voted a big 65% for medical marijuana. Will recreational hit near future ballot? Seems more of those not in support for use favor not criminalizing it. Michigan first Midwest state to vote for recreational use.

Re: Politics

^Agree, DEMs need a pragmatic moderate/centrist that can appeal to moderates, not the hard left. It worked for KS, which ranked #1 in GOP identity just 5 years ago.

Re: Amazon searching for second HQ

Is understandable though. In tight white collar labor market makes sense to divide between two metros. It doesn't sound like they planned this the whole time and later realized it would be hard to hire that many in one market. End result being regional offices rather than second HQ. But overall, Ama...
