Re: Unbuilt KC

It was supposed to be Bernstein-Rein's new HQ, and it started being built as a Moshe Safdie design, then the developer got in a fight with JE Dunn over something or other and construction stopped and the partially-built structure sat for a few years before being sold, torn down, and rebuilt to hous...

Re: Would you like to see the Royals move to a downtown stadium?

the cardinals have played in a non-downtown stadium for more years than they have ever been downtown, including a non-downtown busch stadium....for decades longer than the royals have even been in kansas city. <rolls eyes> To highlander's point, Busch II opened in what, 1966? Essentially, the cards...

Re: We need a new airport!!!

i think the illinois airport (mid america not the downtown airport) is really a quirk of pork belly type spending and the air force base connected to it. i don't think there was ever really a need for it, myself, except maybe when STL was a hub.

Re: KC to STL Hyperloop

i think it would be a good thing, if it were a realistic proposal. i think many people would love being able to live in the same place but be able to accept a job on the other side of the state. suddenly having the employment options of a 5 million person metro (or whatever) would be huge. it would ...

Re: Would you like to see the Royals move to a downtown stadium?

"If a motivational speaker at Municipal Auditorium is the worst it gets, then it can't be that bad." It was that traffic for the event along with the morning rush hour traffic. Traffic was more or less at a standstill. Not sure how the traffic was in the NE part of downtown but the west a...

Re: KC to STL Hyperloop

And we want to connect with St. Louis why? Why let them drag us down? i guess the kansas city metro focusing only on having a half-dysfunctional foot in kansas instead of a better connection to the primary economic driver in the state - the 1.3 million missourians in st. louis city and st. louis co...

Re: KC to STL Hyperloop

any hyperloop proposal in the midwest that doesn't include chicago is bunk. i would have liked to have seen kc-stl-chicago...kc-stl sounds half-baked to me.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

it's basically an airport for cheap flights to the sunbelt (plus cargo) for illinois retirees and college kids from what i can tell. 157,000 passengers in 2016.

none..... I don't think they even have daily flights Update. They Average about 6/10ths a commercial flight a day(or just 4 per week). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bdzWhd459_A i think it's more than that, now. direct flights from the airport website: SANFORD/ORLANDO (SFB) TAMPA BAY/ST.

Re: Kentucky 2017

I know Missouri has tried to promote vinculture tourism along the Missouri River but what I've seen to date has not been particularly well done - Herman was a huge disappointment. The area along the Missouri River and northern ozarks does resemble some of the wine growing...

Re: Is the term midwest to broad?

in any case, missouri is a mess to characterize. i've been spending a lot of time in illinois and kentucky and was just in cincinnati and indianapolis and missouri feels like an encore mash-up of all of that, really, and of course kansas city is a lot like indianapolis and st. louis is kind of a mor...

Re: Is the term midwest to broad?

i could be completely wrong about illinois migration to specifically rural northern missouri , if they did it seems like they came from marginal (farming) areas of southern illinois or pivoted up through and then back down to missouri. the character of northern missouri (people) seems a bit differen...

Re: Is the term midwest to broad?

And the northern farming country would have been heavily be populated by farmers from Illinois farther north. Changes happened over the years of course, but these three general bands largely hold up today. You see a lot more people move to KC from Nebraska than Arkansas because of cultural fit. i a...

"MO is tricky. Western MO seems more like the Plains - the Eastern parts are more like the South." My split is more north/south with the MO River more or less the dividing line. Of course there are those who probably say it's KC and St. Louis together and then the rest of the state. north...

Embrace Pan-Midwesternism. pretty much, i've tried dissecting the thing, dividing midwestern cities into the three categories of river/lake/prairie (or rail) but the end result is basically a sandwich of prairie-type cities between a slice of river city and lake city. granted the sandwhich gets mes...

Re: Is the term midwest to broad?

Do you guys think the term Midwest is to broad? I find that Kansas City seems to have little in common with the rest of the Midwest. I feel like the midwest should be split up into smaller sections that more accurately reflect its problem. I feel like we should be called the Heartland along with Om...
