Re: Pursuing FREE City-Wide Bus

presumably the value in a real free city-wide bus system would be freeing people who previously had no choice but to tie up significant percentages of their available funds in acquiring and maintaining vehicles. nobody's going to be able to do that for a trial run. so the extent to which you see "f...

Re: What is the best KCRag/Skyscrapers username of all time?

I think my favorite was when he changed the css and all the forum names and everything as though this were actually a KRANG fan page. That also really pissed people off. And was also extremely funny.

Re: KCMO Downtown Streetcar

To add to the strangeness, my lunch buddy and I were leaving Beignet and heading back toward the 5th Street stop; when we got almost to Minsky's, a streetcar pulled into the stop, so we figured we'd have to catch it when it looped back around to Delaware. No big deal, but before we even got to the D...

Did the overhead sign say anything like out of service or something? People in the train?

Check a mirror and make sure you are still, uh, visible?
Didn't notice an out of service sign, and there were pax. Appeared to stop at the library stop. I dunno, just weird.

Standing on the northbound metro center platform and 803 just whizzed by without stopping. Not a huge deal, just wondering if anyone knows what's up?

Re: Saxon at the Midland (formerly Midland Office Building)

Or, you know, we could not artificially deflate rents with complex regulations that ultimately just make a few people rich and screw poor people while simultaneously ensuring that no landlord ever invests in renovations because why bother. That was the takeaway I had from the NPR piece on rent contr...

Re: Downtown has become Digital Nomad friendly

High end devices have been moving away from USB-A for years, although I guess most people with fancy phones and laptops probably don't take the bus much. And there are always adapters.

No idea what their names are, but the two folks who have been working both times I stopped in appear to be Chinese. The dude definitely takes your order in hanzi or something close enough I can't tell the difference.

It was good enough I went back the next day and got something different. I've had the Longan beef and beef lo mein so far.

Apropos of nothing, I figured I'd revive this ancient dead thread for no good reason, just to announce that the funky little Chinese noodle place between Johnny C's and Mama Tio's is really good.
