Re: Sporting Kansas City

A nice thing about living in a city with a large Spanish speaking population is that I am able to watch this game on TV without cable. Why is this not on network TV? (of course, as I type this, RSL scores a goal)

Re: TIME TO FREAK OUT AGAIN ABOUT CONFERENCE REALIGNMENT! TH

Are you trying to make the case that the Big 12 is better than the ACC because of percentage of Top 25 teams? so, in your opinion, the conference with the current #1 team is worse than the Big 12? Would you care to compare the number bowl bound teams from each BCS conference and see where the Big 1...

Re: Politics

And not that this makes any difference, but speaking of white faces... have you seen Cruz and Rubio? Seriously? And what is their heritage? If Obama can be a 'Black' president with a 100% White mother what does that say about faces? Their heritage is Cuban, a group that votes Republican more than m...

Re: Politics

There are quite a few similarities between the two but the big difference now is the Tea Party types plus the amount of the deficit and public debt. This time, if the government does shut down, nobody will actually come out an all-out winner. The individual mandate of Obamacare might survive but th...

Re: The KCMO School District

VH is nearly 60% white, but still has 77% Free/Reduced Lunch, probably still more whiter and higher income than most KCMSD schools, Will they ever change the boundries of VH to include some of the Truman or WC attendance areas? http://mcds.dese.mo.gov/guidedinquiry/District%20and%20Building%20Stude...

Re: The KCMO School District

I often wonder about year-round school. We spend quite a few resources on efforts over the summer to keep kids engaged and out of trouble when they have all of that extra free time. There are also a few studies about how much kids lose over summer from the previous year and how much time is spent a...

Re: The KCMO School District

We also know that in 2007, both Independence and Kansas City constituents overwhelmingly voted to allow Independence to annex a part of Kansas City Public Schools, including 2,600 of its students in seven schools. One school was closed. The others remained open, and the students continued to be enr...

Re: The KCMO School District

The Kansas City School District has more challenges than suburban schools. One example I can think of is that at Northeast High School, children come from families that speak 27 different languages at home. The district attempts to educate kids from families where the parents don't value education,...

Re: NHL OR NBA, let the message board decide!!

The KC Bucks because state has rejected building the Bucks a new Arena and could also buy the Coyotes. As long as Herb Kohl was a Senator, the Bucks were off the table because it would have been political suicide to sell them to a buyer who would have moved them. Now, that is not a factor, but Kohl...

The Bevo 10 may not live to see the post cable world, cord cutting hasn't yet reached the point where it's cutting into the big media conglomerates profits.

Re: TIME TO FREAK OUT AGAIN ABOUT CONFERENCE REALIGNMENT! TH

This is the initial period. Look for a readjustment period when ESPN realizes these networks are not the gold mines they thought they would be. The SEC has no appeal outside of SEC country and I suspect it has limited appeal even in Missouri which has two professional teams that garner the bulk of ...

ATKC- are you Devin? I am somewhat amazed to get home and read four pages of this. What it comes down to, though, is simply that MU (in the form of ATKC) wants to have its cake and eat it too. With the KU rivalry, ATKC wants to say that KU should harbor no ill feelings at all for MU attempting to de...

Re: 2013 NCAA Tourney

Glass half full viewpoint: seven of the original Big 8 are in the tournament. I remember one year in the early 90's, 1993, I think, Missouri upset K-State to win the tournament in a relatively strong year for the conference. The ESPN was questioning whether OU, as I recall, the sixth team in from th...

StL-style pizza wouldn't be nearly so insidious if it were confined to St Louis. Then I could avoid it. Instead, it's metastasized to this side of the state.
