Re: MAX Off-Board Fare Collection PLEASE! Edit Report Quote Post by chingon » Sun Jul 15, 2007 3:22 pm Why don't they just make all public transportation free to riders, subsidized by taxes?

Re: medical marijuana

illinois legalized full recreational use and sale, including the metro east of st. louis. not sure how that will influence missouri, yet. Since anything opening in the east suburbs of St. Louis will be making most of their fortune off Missouri residents (I jest, of course, nobody will do that becau...

Henneberger is probably the lone bright light at the Star, on either side of the editorial wall.
Disagree. Henneberger sucks shit. She's like an old white lady Jenee.

Re: Next Mayor 2019

Uniting the East side with the republicans was quite a feat. I guess the lesson is to be the 2nd most progressive candidate on the ballot? Impressive indeed. It's almost like Lucas acknowledged there was more to KC than just throwing money around downtown. Justus just sounded like a robot repeating...

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...

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: 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 ...

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...
