Kansas City Too Cheap For Hyatt Memorial
I have "philosophical" issues with this memorial. But ideological considerations don't really have a place in this crap economy.
On 31st anniversary of Hyatt disaster, skywalk memorial still lacks funds
As usual, there's KANSAS CITY TAX MONEY CAUGHT UP IN THE SENTIMENTAL DEVELOPMENT FAIL . . . Here's a money quote:
"The foundation has received several large contributions for the project, including $75,000 in tax revenue from the city of Kansas City. The Hallmark Corporate Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the company that owns Crown Center, pledged $50,000. After initially declining, Hyatt agreed to donate $25,000 for the project."
Short on cash and long on hard feelings and empty promises . . . This memorial development is already a perfect example of the enduring Kansas City spirit. Or something.
DEVELOPING . . . Or not.
