What private information? It's all public.

Get real.

If she doesn't want anyone asked her questions about the public things she does, or who injured themselves on "her" property suing her for damages, then maybe she shouldn't have "her" property on top of city/public property while creating a fuss about the way the city uses it's own property. If she really doesn't expect anyone to criticize her or speak up about the violations of multiple laws and codes that she's so openly committing, then perhaps she shouldn't be such a hypocritical bitch. Let's stop blaming the gun here, and start holding the person pulling the trigger accountable.

I'm talking public impression, not law.

Anyway, I'm sorry I got involved in this. I didn't mean to shut anyone down, just show a little more discretion because people find it creepy. But you do you.

That's closer to the heart of the issue. I don't care if people take positions I am opposed to. That's their right regardless of how misguided I believe their ideas are and I never have an issue with politely debating the issues.

But the person in question here has seemingly taken up a "cause" to protect their own self interest and cover up what is potentially suspect activity without regard to their property. That's hypocrisy, it's simply not forgivable, and I suspect it would not go over well even with the people the individual ostensibly claims to be trying to protect from higher taxes. If the allegation is true, it should be open season. But then again, American politics have descended to a level that anyone can do whatever they want regardless of how reprehensible and altogether avoid any public condemnation so maybe it's just par for today's course.

And being right, it’s a bad article because it’s really easy to spin as government against one individual.

remember, the federal government has been 100% in the right on issues of land rights and still come out behind

We need to amplify this, I can see a lot of folks just showing up at their normal station on election day.

At the very least there should be "go here" signs up on the door of the not a polling places. Not everyone will read a sign but you can't help everyone.

Is the plan to stick with three car length trains or go longer? Or is that further down the road?

Just like the conversation about articulated buses, it’s better to just run more often than to buy longer vehicles (and have to retrofit your maintenance facility).

We have single car trains.

Compare to examples of Houston for two car trains or Charlotte for three car trains.

Each car has a coupler on both ends and driver controls on both ends of each car. So a three car train has six driver spots and two couplers in use.

In the future it would be much better to combine two current vehicles. Allows for flexibility of service without the downsides mentioned. Houston runs both 1x and 2x trains on different lines without buying different trains for each.

Can open a new line with longer vehicles and retrofit platforms on an existing line as funding allows.

Much better operational flexibility and value

I was at The Whole Person spot a little after noon today - there were a handful of voters there. Good luck David!

Are results out? If so, did the pro streetcar people win?

The Smart KC group were 8th, 9th and 10th and 11th

Three directors would serve three-year terms. Two would serve two-year terms and two would serve one-year terms.


Read more here: http://www.kansascity.com/news/local/kc ... 80422.html

Rough guess is
Circo, Marcason and Alonso are 3 years
Johnson and Krum are 2 years
Dastrup and Graham are 1 year

I keep hearing about a push for dedicated row down main. Had this become a big priority?
