Re: Climate Change Will Force a New American Migration

Anecdotal but, my family used to work in forestry and logging in northern CA back in the 50’s-70’s, Sierra club was formed and pressed state to halt all forestry operations in Northern CA. Not only did this kill all logging industry in CA, this decimated the ability of the state to manage the fores...

Re: New Broadway Bridge

Ask tourists how they feel. I'll give you a hint: NOBODY wants to move to a boring, chlorine clean city with no character. Architecture exists to attract. The failure to use attractive architecture has GENERATIONAL effects. And yet Levittown attracted tons of people... Literally never heard of it. ...

Re: Politics

Not half of murders, half of *known* murders. Crime numbers depend on people reporting. It's the core claim, that systematic racism is skewing the numbers because of purposeful lack of enforcement of crimes by whites. There's multiple religious groups with claims the church protects sex offenders a...

Re: Best Local Trails

To be honest, I’m quite fond of the Indian creek trail, although some municipalities don’t maintain their sections as well as others, It’s an awesome trail for any type of distance. I've noticed this on maps. Is it good for cycling? Are there a lot of street crossings? Biking is the sport I'll be d...

If you haven't taken anything Mother Jones has published seriously, then I don't really care what you think, TBH. I try to stay away from anything that's openly far sided in their bias. Not saying biased media is incapable of putting out the occasional good story, but I think it's important to know...

Re: High Speed Rail - someday?

The new construction segments will actually be fast -- I think 110mph -- because they're being mostly built in the freeway right-of-way. The initial segment is existing track with too many grade crossings, other train traffic, and stations close together. I rarely saw us going top speed. How was th...

Re: High Speed Rail - someday?

I understand that currently, Brightline is only classified as higher-speed rail, but they are absolutely showing the legitimate demand for privately built passenger rail in the U.S.; they’re well on their way to completing their extension to Orlando, with further expansion plans to Tampa as well.

So this is going to be a boring girder bridge like the heart of america? That is extremely disappointing.
Can’t do too much vertically due to new proximity to approach to MKC, I imagine under-lighting could do a lot to make it stand out at night at least

Re: GO CHIEFS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kansas City is getting a lot of bad press in the national media right now from the boos during the moment of unity during the Texan's game. From what I understand from talking to people who were there, the boos were more directed at the Texan's decision to sit out the anthem. In any event, TYT (who...

Re: Twincreeks updated site plan

Wish these suburban dollars flew downtown. The upside is the developments in the Northland are mostly all within 15 miles of downtown. Versus the Johnson County developments which are an hour from downtown and cater mostly to people who work in Johnson County thus promoting even less jobs and busin...

Re: Power and Light District Official Tenant List

I'm surprised some big bank (like Chase) hasn't swooped in and bought the former Federal Reserve Bank building to stake their flag in the market. Given the right offer, and the endless delays in renovating the building, they could probably have gotten the developer to sell, or convert their plan to...

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

You pretty much can't sit outside on that North patio. I was surprised how loud it was. They really should just give up on it. The 7th floor patio is much quieter and allows for better physical distancing. It's open less often, however. Would that make them at all likely to kick in funding to a cap...
