Re: We are wasting so much time, money and effort on yet another bistate plan...

then the jocites who want to have the freedom to vote should really raise hell.  a letter writing campaign, a petition, phone calls, constant badgering, yard signs...if we've learned anything in american politics during the last 15 years its that a self righteous, vocal minority can make the politic...

Re: Midtown Graffiti problem

^ yes, punish the victim.  that is a fan-fucking-tanstic policy! as spotster pointed out we have a serious graffiti problem in northeast.  i'm not talking about cute little tags and throw-ups, i'm talking about the shit-smear "east side lokotes" tags everywhere on st. john and environs.  i shudder t...

Re: Is GRID Right? Is the general populace that ignorant of KC development?

unlike you, the union workers you malign do live in this city.  the fact that we vote, and take political action to further our interests as employees of the city is not "feeding off voter apathy", it is civic responsibility.  to lump the working people of this city in with the corporate leeches and...

Re: We are wasting so much time, money and effort on yet another bistate plan...

there's something to be said for that.  maybe the marc should develop a plan which allows for county-by-county inlcusion/exclusion, or even city by city.  put it to a vote, and those that vote it down will simply not be provided transit opitions within our system.  when they pull they're heads out o...

Re: Where do we live

sportster, Such a cheery breath of fresh air! hmm? is that sarcasm i detect?  because if it is, i'd like you to meet my friend "irony" - as in, isn't ironic that you begin your post with sarcasm, when you are apparently unable to detect it in the posts of others? And the last time you drove Gladsto...

Re: Pendleton Heights

fuck 'em.  if someone says they live on the plaza, and whomever they're talking to thinks they mean town center plaza in leawood, who cares.  the name of our neighborhood is northeast.   here's a polite way to handle it: moron:  "so, where do youlive?" northeast:  "northeast." moron:  "oh, li...

Re: Where do we live

clearly "historic" and, its variant "historic district", are elaborate code words.  to residents they mean, "this was once beautiful...no, seriously", to visitors they mean "warning, ghetto!",  to cops and garbagemen they mean "fuck it, don't bother".

Re: Is GRID Right? Is the general populace that ignorant of KC development?

as one of these infamous "first generation rural transplants", from ever-so-maligned-on-this-forum kansas, i think there's a little truth in the assertion that kc can be intimidating to non-city dwellers.  but kansas city has always been where country people came to be urban.  in fact, most cities w...

Re: Pendleton Heights

please, i BEG you, stop referring to northeast as the upper east side.  it is northeast.  not OLD northeast, or HISTORIC northeast, and definitely not the UPPER EAST SIDE.  this neighborhood name larceny is embarrassing.  it was sick of nyc to steal the name soho (which is in london, not south of ho...

Re: Dec. 22 Press Conference

i shudder to think that you may be right.  keeping poor and working class people in line is easier when they can't think critically, its even easier if they can't read.  rich people and yuppies then have the nerve to suggest that you "can't just throw money" at the education problem in major cities....

Re: Pendleton Heights rocks!

tree-lined streets are an unmeasurable asset to places like ph and scarritt.  we have the potential to be kc's most beautiful urban neighborhhood, but northeast will never regain its status until the city and its citizens do something about the trash and dumping up here.  before i moved here, i thou...

Re: Where do we live

what's the deal with no northeast in the poll?  even on an "urban" forum everybody pretends the city stops at paseo?
