Re: Academie Lafayette

The District’s shenanigans with SW high, especially Clinton Adams’s involvement with blocking any proposal for a second good high school in the District, are something worse than “profligate behavior” and approaching malfeasance. Can you elaborate on this? I am curious. Also what is the status (if ...

Re: Academie Lafayette

There’s something of a difference between a dedicated revenue stream for pre-k and the one-time gain from an asset sale. Everyone gets wound up about Southwest, but the district has sold 20 buildings and only has 5 left on the market. Fewer than that have been demolished. Nothing about that strikes...

Re: Next Mayor 2019

I know a few people who have been friendly with her for decades and are having a hard time with her performance this council term. The changes in the city in the last 5-10 years seem to have opened quite a generational divide. I have a lot of respect for her politically, and as a savvy and capable ...

Re: How Kansas City got its' name

:lol: Or a territory or state that didn't yet exist under the Kansas name. Hate to bust your bubble, but the first Kansas City, the village of Canzes, existed in modern day Doniphan, Co.

Re: Politics

If Beto loses does he have a chance to run as president in 2020? He seems like the best compromise between establishment democrats and Bernie democrats. I just don't see any other strong candidate by the left that can unite them. He seems to have enthusiasm nationwide even though he probably won't ...

^This is true, but every time I travel I'm reminded of how spoiled we are here in KC. Waiting in lines is so commonplace in most other cities.

I’ve reached the point in my adulthood where even the names of historic buildings annoy me. Pythias Building? Trump cannot usher in the horrifying and chaotic collapse of this society soon enough for me.

Re: Parlor - 1707 Locust

I can't speak for Lenexa, but I was recently at the two new food halls in New Orleans, Pythian Market and Auction House Market. Parlor is definitely a notch above those trendy spots. Both of those NOLA spots have some equally top-notch food options and Auction House particularly is a really nice sp...

Re: Parlor - 1707 Locust

I've only eat at the Swedish place. So far but 20 bucks for a smaller sausage and fries seems a bit steep. How are the other place prices? Swedish prices for a socially responsible portion of sausage that you can smugly suggest is obviously ideal in a veiled racist way. You know, the full Scandinav...

Re: OFFICIAL - ARTerra (21st and Wyandotte)

That’s bullshit. In the renderings I was 200’ tall and looking down on this building, but after the bait and switch I’m just 5’9” and looking upwards at it in every view I see. Kansas City sucks.

Re: Open Spaces - Kansas City Arts Experience

Location, location, location = fail. This city simply cannot get it right. They keep throwing events at Swope Park and nothing is successful. Example: The Ethnic Fest should have 10 times more visitors than it gets. But who wants to park in a field and walk a mile through tall, chigger-infested gra...

Re: UMKC Conservatory of Music considers move to downtown

The City should just give them Theis Park. Don't see how that is a good idea. That is a great park and it is actually well-used. This forum is full of ideas to get rid of parks and make every corner of the city 'dense'. One thing I love about the city (and most visitors notice) is all the great 'op...
