You can also attribute it to some immigrants who wanted their children to 'be American', by not teaching them the Old World ways or language. After a couple generations the identity could become lost. But would suspect many who call themselves American as their ancestry is about Provincial National...

Re: Main Street MAX

thanks for the reminder about the turn lane on cleaver! No need to fix the turn lane back up if you eliminate the south plaza jog... plaza library generates a lot of trips. why eliminate jog now when streetcar construction will disrupt that segment of main/brookside? I see your point about construc...

Seems fairly ignorant to write off a group of people’s cultural identity as “super dumb” just because you personally wouldn’t do it that way, and that’s not an opinion.

if KCATA were to "refresh" main MAX while we wait for the streetcar extension in 2022-23, what changes would you make? 0. Free 1. Eliminate the South Plaza jog. 2. Floating bus island at 47th/Cleaver/BKS/Main. 3. Eliminate local service/split route south of the Plaza 4. Fix the condition ...

Re: Politics

The fact that McCaskill will run unopposed in the primary (or that she is being allowed to run at all) tells you just about everything you need to know about the immediate future of the Democratic Party in Missouri. Do most multi-term incumbent senators get primaried? Nope. As you know, I’m sure. B...

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

It will be interesting to see how the east side opinion changes after implementation of the starter line and likely approval of the extension. But then again, they could have just sent them 60k. It wouldn’t have taken that much. Pride goeth before the fall. And if a few people, 1 man in particular,...
