Re: Politics

^The definition of liberal/conservative have somewhat different meanings per decade as well, as do party agendas. But it is interesting KC is currently more heavily identified as Independent (43%) than other markets (as I do as well). The two parties are too extreme and polarizing for KC maybe.

^In some metros, conservative did go up, like MSP area. Not surprising that retirement metros like Tampa had a big jump in conservative.

Re: Politics

Polls tied to elections are at best just a temperature of public feeling at the moment as what matters is who shows up to vote. Will more DEM leaning supporters actually show up for this mid-term?

People not overweight but have poor balance while moving/standing? At least these take up less space than dockless electric assist bikes.

Re: Politics

I find some of the immigration really interesting. Like why did Bosnians settle in South St Louis and its now the largest bosnians population outside of bosnia. or why did Somilians and Hmongs settle in Minnesota? Even Akron has a large Burmese population. KC has a large Somali/Sudanese population ...

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

As a bus rider I can see where you are coming from, a free bus could be just as useful for those who are indifferent about bus vs streetcar. But don't think you can debate that fixed rail of any kind will ultimately spur significant development through midtown and attract new riders overall and redu...

Re: OFFICIAL - ARTerra (21st and Wyandotte)

Variety good but wouldn't exactly call this complementary. Sticks out like sore thumb. Though not a fan of tan in general, and it doesn't age well. That is, darker tones have a better 'distressed' look over time than tan, which looks dirty in not a good way.

Re: Bird Scooters Have Landed

Have there been any complaints to City ever since Bird/Lime expanded? If not, any chance City will allow more scooters (over 500 per operator) or more operators?

Re: Politics

The idea the present administration has with shutting down, or severely limiting, immigration is simply madness. Most Americans are barely reproducing at a rate to replace the existing population of workers. The largest generation in history is either already retired and approaching retirement. And...

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

Honey If you don't like density move to the fuckn burbs. KC has very little urbanity as it is and needs to build it up 5 fold, starting with The Plaza area as it's the easiest path to get there.
