heavys come in with the overhaul base. Tons of 474s from Russia parked over there, no idea how often they move.
Thanks. I did not even realize the overhaul base was still functional.

Re: KC Zoo 2020

I didn't even know about those plans, NormalThings. I just checked and observed that construction begins in 2021. The grand opening will be in 2023. I may not even be alive then! But if I am, I will make a point to visit the aquarium and take pictures, just for you. <smiley face> Wow. I knew it was...

Re: We are getting a new airport!!!

If they are going to put a BBQ place in the airport and it's not an already established restaurant, it should be called Perry's Place after Henry Perry, the original creator of Kansas City BBQ. I just hope it isn't one of the abominations they've put in the airport in the past. Been a while since I...

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

I am reading in the Star that Tiffany will re-open on the Plaza. They cite new management wanted to re-assess their presence in KCMO.

From a survey of business travel a large percentage indicated that they will never reach pre covid levels.
The Teams/Zoom meeting Genie, all the downsides notwithstanding, is out of the bottle and will never be put back in.

Re: Plaza Residential Development

I looked at the new Plaza Heights homes about a year ago. I liked the neighborhood but for us, and we weren't crazy about the floor plan, they were a bit too small and the configuration of having to lug groceries etc.. out of a garage a flight of stairs was not really suitable for a retirement home ...

There is already technology that allows for five-minute charging. It just needs to be manufactured to scale, and deployed.

I seem to have read in the past that scientists have said that it's better to keep as much oil in the ground as possible to slow down climate change, and instead incentivize the switch to other forms of energy. Continuing to make it easier to extract oil defeats that approach. Oil will still be nee...

Isn't one of the reasons the Canadians are so gung-ho about this pipeline through the USA to the Gulf Coast is because without it they will have to build a long pipeline to one of their own ports, across their thousands of miles of their own land?

Re: SE Missouri 2016 Part 2

The Karst region of Missouri with its many giant springs and float rivers are a treasure unknown to most in the US who think of this as uninteresting flyover country. I am hoping it stays that way. Mention tourism in Missouri to anyone outside of the state and they immediately think of Branson. Bra...

If there were any possible credibility in Trump's challenge of enough fraud in elections to change the results, might be more challenging to charge him for 5 deaths but there was zero evidence brought up in court challenges because they knew there is no evidence, they didn't even try in courts, jus...

Re: Politics

I did the research and I’m not taking the time to explain the context of every quote. Where in Trumps speech did he mention violence? Look how you’re so quick to say, “They apologized so it’s ok or well, loud and disruptive isn’t the same as violence. Madonna is just using her free speech to say sh...

Re: COVID-19 Casualties

Every time I see that a new entry into this thread has been entered it makes me a little anxious - as in what urban dining institution are we losing now? I enjoyed Anton's; thought it was a bit overpriced but I hate seeing so many restaurants in this area disappear. Especially Rieger's.

Once again, completely incapable of accepting that both sides do bad things. While there’s no proof to support widespread voter fraud, the republicans main issue is with how the rules were changed at the last minute using a pandemic as the motivation.

Changing the subject, has Hawley destroyed his political future?
