Re: Black leaders seek to rename Paseo to MLK Blvd

..incredibly insulting to the black community. The Paseo is a boulevard in the heart of the KC black community. Maybe we should just stop perpetuating this social racial divide? Maybe? Unless of course MLK Jr. fought for self-segregation. Then, by all means.. I'm sorry guys. You are right. The raci...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

KCI Pax Growth is double what was projected in 2013. SWA and KCAD announced today that the new terminal will be 39-42 gates expandable to 50. Expandable to 50? I feel like that's awfully short sighted. What's the benefit of a new airport if it opens at it's max capacity, and soon thereafter hits it...

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

I do not like to look for a parking place. Is this going to take away some parking? The city actually has a bi-state agreement to use eminent domain to seize your property to demolish your house and build a parking lot for your neighbors leisurely use. It's all in the plan. How else would they find...

Re: Three Light

This argument is stupid. Affordable housing is needed, yes. But, you don't force a private business to help someone who can afford a Ford Fiesta jump into a Ferrari. You help them get into a Focus. The "Light" towers are the Ferrari's of Kansas City. PLENTY of other residential units exist...

I'll put money on it right now that this building when it comes to fruition, will be either 16 or 26 stories. 17 in the off chance I'm wrong on both.

Re: Found a good place to store photos

Google Photos is great for storing. Unlimited storage for photos up to 16MP each. Storage of anything beyond that counts against your Google accounts data quota. Not sure how easy it is to share photo's from your album on there with a forum though. But, it's probably worth a shot.

I called this one a couple of decades ago during the last bridge replacement at that intersection. They're doing the same thing here again: Building for the past.

Re: P&L District: 13th & Main Site Proposal

All I hear from people with Shake Shack in their city is that it is overrated. The only people I've ever heard rave about it are people from other cities. Any major chain is ultimately going to be overrated. Large chains don't make truly special food. Ever. Only a millennial would think otherwise.
