Designing class warfare
Thankfully, the jet set in KC let us all take a look at new designs for Metropolitan Kansas City Performing Arts Center because most of us will probably never see the inside of it. Nevertheless, the patrons of the arts (read: your betters) are nearly done raising money for their pet project. The Star reports:
Backers of the performing arts center have raised $231 million, leaving them $96 million short of their goal. But they promise groundbreaking for the center will take place in fall 2006 if an interim funding goal of $45 million is reached by Feb. 1.Let that thought warm you during the cold nights when you won't turn up the heat for fear of being broken by rising fuel costs. I'm sure all that money is well spent on box seats for JoCo and surrounding suburbanite bastards while the rest of KC proper lives in a war zone. And while the darkies in town probably won't get a chance to work construction on this project either, in the end it will be a boon to KC because music soothes the savage . . . Whatever.
Anyway, I hope all of KC's elite have a wonderful time listing to stringed instruments while the city crumbles around them. I guess it's kind of a time honored tradition, I heard Nero did the same thing.
