CELEBRATE KANSAS CITY KILLING DEMOCRACY ON TRACK TO BUILDING A DOWNTOWN TOY TRAIN STREETCAR!!!
This morning there's the myth of objectivity regarding a pricey plan that's soon to railroad the people of this town:
10 key questions and answers about the KC streetcar plan Sadly, the inquiries aren't the good and the replies are even worse from a Dead Tree outlet that has played the cheerleader for development and taxes for years.
KC streetcar plan: pricey transit or economic magnet? Answer . . . Neither, it's corporate and construction welfare with a bit of political payoff thrown in for good measure. At the expense of all KC Taxpayers in the long run.
Still . . . Mayor Sly will get his toy train thanks to his beautiful smile.

The rhetoric for this train is mostly tired, canned and espoused by suits who have long ago sold their soul to stay in the good graces of politicos and corporations who pretend that they aren't a part of local entitlement culture as well.
