Re: 2022 Senate Race

Missouri is a lost cause. A total, unmitigated shithole. Eric Schmitt is basically a dorkier, straight version of Josh Hawley and he's going to shellack Valentine. This is going to be one of the least interesting Senate races ever.

Re: Can KC Secede and join Kansas?

I would sign a petition to secede and form a city-state, and would think hard about signing one to join Kansas (a place I fled for the greener pastures of KCMO nearly 25 years ago). Missouri is a lost cause. It has one of the top 5 worst state governments in the country.

Re: Can KC Secede and join Kansas?

I work in Missouri politics and don't find the post sensational. Missouri is a failed state and an absolute albatross.

Also, I was incorrect about Denver, which I thought was 2.9 but is 2.6 (acute cell phone dependent dyslexia, aka, old man eyes).

Re: World Cup 2026 at Arrowhead?

Hm? I don't want to derail the thread even more, but Denver's urbanized area is approaching 3 million and KC's is 1.6. Their urbanized area is also twice as dense, plus the rest of the front range urbanized areas are close. The 1990s "Denver is just KC with mountains"-era was 30 years ago...

Re: Denver

What industry or phenomenon is sustaining all this growth in Nashville? What planning did Nashville undertake (which maybe KC could emulate) to stimulate this growth? 1. College kids and adults who act like college kids. It's a shell game. It was Portland in the 90s, Austin in the Aughts and now Na...

Re: World Cup 2026 at Arrowhead?

Also what are you guys on about with Denver and Nashville? Of course they are busier and more bustling than KC. Those are not peer cities. Denver is almost twice the size of KC. The difference between them is about the same as the difference between Denver and DC or Philly. And Nashville is not a ci...

Right. Reading all the comments on social media right now from KC people is annoying. KC people are so delirious.

Re: East Side Development

Regrettably, the chunky old brick apartment building at 33rd and Paseo partially collapsed and then was demolished a couple months ago. It was the last remnant of multifamily pre-war housing between Linwood and Armour.

Indeed. Of course, he wrote "KC", not "KCMO," then figured out he fucked up. Expat St Louis sports fans can't get anything right.

Quit your drivel. Next you’ll be talking about the St. Louis Steamers and “soccer USA” and how it’s the center of the soccer universe but are just now back peddling into an MLS team when the league has been around for decades. Enjoy your Expansion team. the blues are an Expansion team i'll take it....

Re: Rankings, lists, and such

St. Louis has some of the best historic residential stock that I’ve seen available. Meh, I’m kind of with the kids on this one. St Louis has a fairly unique look. It’s just not one a lot of people really want, or the downsides to St Louis do not outweigh whatever charm someone might feel, and there...

If that was directed at me because I live in the DC area, you failed. First off, I'm not even all that fond of DC's new construction. Most of it is bland as hell. However, you almost never see pedestals in DC or above ground parking structures at all. So I really don't understand your point other t...
