Re: KC metro growth and migration stats

Does AT&T even use that monstrosity downtown for anything these days? Half of it has been boarded up on the lower floors for over a month and the building itself has never looked great. Town Pavillion was built for 100% ATT. Yes, I know, but they also have the older structure over behind T-Mobile t...

Re: Remodeling Town Pavillion

Terribly shortsighted. And, mediocre. Elaborate? Anytime you gloat about the removing and stripping away the only thing iconic you've got going... You're probably just screwing yourself over in the end. It is beyond ironic, and slightly moronic to hear them say "Improvements will ...include the rem...

Re: Politics

I mean Trump literally bragged that he just forces himself on women and your response in this thread was that it's never been "proven" that he actually did it, so you'll excuse me if I'm not super convinced of your purported openmindedness in this area.

What is the specific argument that justifies rural interests dominating policy in an urbanized country? A specific issue I could recognize is practically any firearm legislation. Most all legislation passed in an effort to restrict access to firearms comes from politicians coming from largely urban...

...there are overwhelming signs of majority support for Biden/Harris. And I do emphasize Harris, who brought a large number of supporters to the ticket. Where?

CNN was 4% opinion content the same year.
I don't believe that for one second. Watch any random hour worth of CNN and you're likely getting 99% "Opinion" material... not 4%.

Re: New Broadway Bridge

Ask tourists how they feel. I'll give you a hint: NOBODY wants to move to a boring, chlorine clean city with no character. Architecture exists to attract. The failure to use attractive architecture has GENERATIONAL effects. And yet Levittown attracted tons of people... Literally never heard of it.

Re: OFFICIAL: Zona Rosa (tenants & phase II)

I don't think they ever had full occupancy on the northern half of the center. Went through it in maybe May and it was like downtown in 2000, tons of empty space. That's what happens when you build an isolated, suburban shopping district in a field bounded by highway. Zona Rosa was set up for failu...

To me, landmark bridges are like tall buildings in the skyline. They loo...

Re: Politics

It’s ok to talk about how black men are 3 times more likely to be shot by a cop but don’t mention the fact they commit a disproportionate amount of the crime. The US is about 73% white, 13% black This is FBI data on arrests by race from 2017 https://ucr.fbi.gov/crime-in-the-u.s/2017/crime-in-the-u....
