Re: Hyperloop between KC and STL

don't forget grain valley it needs to run on its own siding underneath the lifted trucks but who is going to pay for it and not enough parking . https://cf-images.us-east-1.prod.boltdns.net/v1/static/5615998025001/a073b45a-b707-409d-a696-34c3914c38ab/e12c8e7b-3e37-4115-aa7f-28ba87d0ef92/1280x720/mat...

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

^ It depends on where your flight it coming from and the direction of the wind. When I fly into KC, I will often fly right over downtown and land from the south. I think you have about as good a chance of seeing downtown KC as you do seeing downtown St Louis. By the way, the flight from DC or Balti...

Re: More vacant homes, more violent crime? Small area of Kansas City sees most homicides

i feel like violent crime in kansas city is constantly downplayed, especially in relation to st. louis. "small area..." ok... Perhaps one difference is proximity of the average local to these areas/crimes. Yes, every now and again there is a shooting in Westport at 3AM or something, but the majorit...

Re: More vacant homes, more violent crime? Small area of Kansas City sees most homicides

I remember that Knockout Game a few years back where someone would randomly sucker punch a person, that kind of originated or became viral in St Louis - i don't think that Knockout Game ever spread to KC I also think crime gets covered up/buried by the news if it happens on the Plaza except in west...

Re: More vacant homes, more violent crime? Small area of Kansas City sees most homicides

11 percent of a 319 square mile city is a massive area, that's 35 square miles, or what would be over half of the city of st. louis. i feel like violent crime in kansas city is constantly downplayed, especially in relation to st. louis. "small area..." ok...

Re: High Speed Rail - someday?

Looks like California High Speed Rail is dead and the only line might be in the Central Valley. That's not dead, it's just truncated. It's a realization that state and federal funding hasn't materialized to build the system as proposed. A high speed rail going car centric cities in the Central Vall...

Re: High Speed Rail - someday?

to be sure, i would be happy with a better run version of the illinois high speed rail project between stl and kc...but see below for a problem holding up semi-high speed rail for now... IDOT spokesperson Guy Tridgell says faster speeds are coming soon. A section of the route between Springfield and...

Re: Politics

i'm reading "american nations" right now and it feels very accurate on a macro-level. I appreciate the description of STL as a "border city" straddling the nations of Midlands and Appalachia. https://www.washingtonpost.com/pbox.php?url=http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/govbeat/files/2013/11/upina...

also, my understanding of american movement into missouri - following the settlement by the french creoles (based on my family history and others) is that the early waves of settlers, often from virginia like my ancestors, followed the rivers, and the ozark uplands were settled last - often picked o...

Re: Politics

Northern Missouri is nothing like the Ozark flatlands. I've been in *every* county in the state. There's a reason for this, northern Missouri is glacial till while the Ozarks are not. Culturally things are more similar today but population movement tended to happen by latitude. This is because farm...

Re: Politics

At the risk of generalizations.. . Northland KC evangelicals seem pretty religiously extroverted where KS evangelicals more likely to keep to themselves, but neither as politicizing as southern MO. I spend a lot of time in NW and upper central MO and they appear to be more like Iowa. St Joe area st...

disclaimer: i tend to contend that "missouri" really isn't a thing in the way say kentucky is, but a collection of overlapping and non overlapping regions. According to same source, KS has a bit more religiously unaffiliated than MO and more Latino Catholic of course but was surprised to see KS whit...

Re: Politics

i actually think western missouri (non KCMO osage plains) may be more wacky protestant than kansas, southwest missouri and the ozarks of course is obvious.
