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...

Re: Politics

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.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

If There is no bizarre love for a shitty old dated terminal like KC has for KCI. KC has a very odd emotional attachment to KCI and there are a lot of people that are enjoying watching the process to get a new terminal stumble. The election showed that those that have some kind of emotional attachme...
