It will be heartbreaking if they burn portions of the Plaza. A huge majority of protesters are there peacefully, it's the minority within that group that wants to cause the problems. To me, burning property and cars along with breaking windows and looting stores does nothing to advance a cause. If ...
"Dividends are an agreement between an investor and an investment, so they are not a problem." Come again? If dividend payments have left companies with too little cash on hand to weather an economic crisis , then dividends are a problem. You don't have to agree with that, but it's a coherent thoug...
You could substitute any word with either salutory or pejorative connotation in my argument upthread. Introducing slavery is just a strawman, not an argument. It's not a strawman, it's an illustration of a fact that you just unwittingly admitted yourself, that your own argument had no actual substa...

Dividends represent the (slow) return of capital on an investment. They pay usually a little more than the going interest rate, and sound com...

It was really only doing well with events and on nights when Kauffman was hopping (but dead during the shows). Perhaps it will become an exclusive extension of the PAC for patrons and musicians only? That's a good idea -- most large entertainment venues have patron lounges, like the Beranek Lounge ...
What's the deal with Florida? It sounds like mostly everything is opening back up next week.

COVID could have big impacts on the 2020 census. --College students are normally supposed to register in the town in which their dorm/school is in.

Asian virus experts are saying the W[est] is making a mistake not using masks for general public, but there aren't even enough for hospitals. The West, to be fair, will simply not wear masks forever. This virus is going to become endemic to the species, similar to influenza. Meaning the Chinese and...
After some poking around, I have found this link: https://unifiedgov.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/d70568d6300444d5a69692da6d4c986c ...which shows the cases in Wyandotte County by zip code.

I am disappointed at the state-wide data available for geotracking of the Coronavirus. It's far too general. 60 cases in Jackson County; 80 in Johnson County -- too vague. I want to know the census tract data for the residence of those who are sick. Not where they were tested, but where they reside....

The East Bottoms is significantly important in terms of economic activity to KCMO. Nothing in the next 50 years will be done to impede the smooth flow of trucking traffic through that area.

Watching the print media world collapse, in slow motion, over the past decade may be the foreshadowing of other, old-school societal models imploding. I am thinking of local governments (especially smaller cities and suburbs with large legacy costs and pension promises). Although towns have the leve...

I was working in 1KC Place (tallest building) during the Royals parade (and I still work in the building). We had workers stuck downtown until 9pm. If you didn't leave the downtown area early -- like by Noonish, you got stuck. There were cars abandoned on the interstates, on various sidewalks, curbs...

If both quarter-cent tax increases pass, we would be looking at what in the downtown area? Over 12%? Closing in on 13%? KC is over its skis here -- way beyond its peer cities with these double-digit sales taxes. I know there is variation within the city (which is why I go to Brookside to buy groceri...

All the Crown Center restaurants that were managed by the Hyatt (and, presumably after the change, the Sheraton) were pretty bad. Milano, Crayola, etc. I'd be curious if all of them closing is part of the hotel divesting itself of managing all those external businesses. Yes, they were moved to Sher...

Philmont Scout Reservation in New Mexico. 10 days backpacking out in the woods. Lots of fun. Southwest Chief should go straight on to Denver after Topeka, then south to Trinidad from there. That section between Wichita and Trinidad is what almost got the line shut down a few years back, and the tra...
