Wonder why he hasn't responded. I'm sure it's a completly different scenario.
i have responded. i will be happy to respond again. kard, i am not sitting here promoting downtown while calling it dead, referring to it is "down there" and saying there is absolutely "nothing to do there" like kietz does. i am not sitting here being on air, listened to by tens of thousands, saying, it is a terrible place to open a business. kevin kietzman, is. kevin kietzman sits behind his mike, and says on one hand, we need a downtown stadium, and on the other, saying that he would not invest his money into a venture in the same downtown.
i, when i come to town, spend my money downtown, in restaurants and hotels, A LOT FOR THAT MATTER. and, talk up downtown, speak about it well, and when i had the chance to put my money where my mouth was, putting a business in downtown, i put my own money behind the plan. has kk done any of that? he made it known on the air his investment along with 7 others on a dt condo was $10k. 10k. save that shit.
so, yes, i left to further my career, in a way my beloved home city could not do. i made that choice, stand by it, and would do it again in a second if given the opprutunity. i have yet to fall in love with any city, new york, washington, dc, colonial williamsburg, pittsbugh, in the way i did with kcmo. and never will, hence, coming back so much. but, leaving, to further my career, and still spending lavishly on dt kcmo, versus, living, working, and playing in joco, never going dt, and telling everyone else that the same dt you say is dead and hopeless, that they should invest in dt, are not the same.
and you know it.
have a nice day.
