Re: We need a new airport!!!

That may be true, but I personally never cared as much about where the money came from as I did the fact that the whole thing seemed like a revenue grab from the beginning. I don't think people care as much about whether it is a tax as they do that it may be being collected under false pretenses, pe...

Re: Downtown Buildings with Activity

He seems about as ideologically anti-downtown KC as a person can be, preaching to a choir of similar misguided voices over on KC Confidential. "Screw downtown, don't spend any money on it! Let it rot! Except you didn't, and now I think I can make money there because of all the things you did th...

Re: Eclipse

Totality was short here, and a bit cloudy, but I managed to get a phone shot: http://i.imgur.com/TWVyie6.jpg

I guess it's not really totality, it never actually got completely dark, but whatever. It looks kinda neat.

Just please, no flying cars. Unless they fly themselves. People driving on roads are enough of a menace to other vehicles, people, and property.

Re: P&L District: 13th & Walnut Site Proposal

If it's confusing to people, big deal, they'll figure it out. It won't be confusing to the tourist market, the big 12 customers, the concert goers or anyone else who can use a smartphone to search for nearby restaurants. It won't be confusing to anyone who walks by and can see the Joe's logo, grant...

Re: P&L District: 13th & Walnut Site Proposal

Seems very much like they are tryharding to pull off "trendy bistro" or whatever when all anybody--tourists and locals--wants is a bbq joint. I don't doubt it will do well enough, but I'm thoroughly confused how it is that anyone thought this was a better idea than a simple downtown Joe's...

Re: P&L District: 13th & Walnut Site Proposal

Joe has stated over and over again he is DONE opening more "Joe's". Cool story, but that doesn't really address how anyone thought this was a better idea than that. "I'm tired of giving people what they want, so instead I'm going to give people something vaguely similar but simultane...

The new Hayward's is supposed to be pretty good and seems like it should be close to the area you're talking about, if I'm visualizing it right.

Re: We need a new airport!!!

Austin is 660k sf. and 25 gates....so the small AECOM version. While the small AECOM version is cheaper and may fit us currently, that doesn't seem the route to go. Money is cheaper now, let's not pigeonhole ourselves into a terminal that may require expansion plans the day it opens. Were all the A...

Looked roughly comparable to Austin to me, which seems about right. Never been in Wichita's though.
