Re: KCTV5 tower.

We need better icons. No doubt, but it takes generations to create a true icon. This is what we have, a deep second to Plaza lights, Bartle towers, Liberty Memorial, etc. It is worth keeping and upgrading. I find nothing iconic or interesting about it. It's an eye-sore and takes up a ton of space i...

Have to wonder if removing the incandescent lights off and the heat that they produce is a reason for there being a bigger ice problem. Either way, it’s a KC icon and should never be taken down.

Re: Various restaurants coming to City

It was on my mind last night, so I ended up going. The half chicken was very good/moist, as were the cucumber salad and fried rice sides. The half chicken and two sides was enough for me to save enough for a decent sized lunch. I still think the skin/char of the chicken at El Pollo Rey is a bit bett...

Taqueria Silvas has a taco truck at 18th and Cleveland if you're headed that way. It's pretty good/cheap.

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

Deliberately increasing property values can hurt the long-time neighborhood homeowners. If a resident is on a fixed income, or a younger homeowner has inherited their childhood home, but doesn't earn a lot, they are facing increasing property tax bills. It can also affect them to the point that the...

Milwaukee streetcar opens next weekend. Will be free to ride for the first year, then $1 per trip after that. I'll be visiting Nov. 10-12 and will share pics.
I'm hopefully going there for a trip in the spring. Can't wait to check it out. Milwaukee is a really underrated midwest city, IMO.

Hadn't heard about this, Outpost Social Club, 1000 W. 25th St. By October Looks to be same address as La Esquina? So, this is now some chicken place called Poi-o.

I agree that it seems to soon for Beto. But I'm also tired of hearing the Warren/Biden/Sanders/HRC talk. I'm a lifelong Democrat and appreciate the years of time and effort those people have dedicated to public service, but I'm ready for some new voices. Maybe Harris - maybe someone people aren't ev...

It does look like the name is stupid obvious and you know what you're getting when you go there. What does Affaire sell just based off the name? What does it matter what Affaire sells? I haven't seen anyone complain that the "Streetcar" name doesn't indicate what it is. It's just follows a pattern ...

I'll take it if it means people stop thinking of Webster as an MBA mill with campuses nationwide at the nearest Class C office park.
Out of respect for your degree, I avoided ANY comment about them moving into the vacant space in Ward Pkwy Mall.

Re: Chess Hall of Fame (St Louis)

I wonder if he has anything to do with Webster University (my alma mater) starting up a chess team that now wins national tournaments. Apparently, St. Louis is the Chess capital of America. And Webster's recent success - and I assume this museum - are a result of that fact. https://www.economist.co...

Re: Jackson County Charter Changes

I agree campaign finance and incumbency are challenges to the system we have. But, as far as a solutions go, I don't see term limits as some panacea. I look at the Mayor's office here in KC or the Presidency and don't see how term limits there have really improved those that much.

Re: Jackson County Charter Changes

What's your logic for voting against term limits? 1. We have elections. 2. I don't think term limits are particularly effective at rooting out the evil they claim. 3. We risk the possibility of limiting extremely talented legislators from becoming even better. I don't think they're inherently evil ...
