CELEBRATE!!! JACKSON COUNTY EXECUTIVE MIKE SANDERS SOON TO ANNOUNCE KANSAS CITY VAPORWARE TRANSIT PLAN!!!
Kudos to Jackson County Executive Mike Sanders for consistently taking his cues from tried and true tech industry tactics.
"Vaporware is a term in the computer industry that describes a product, typically computer hardware or software, that is announced to the general public but is never actually released nor officially cancelled."
Keep that term in mind when it comes to this presser lovingly reprinted by Dead Tree Media . . .
"Now that downtown Kansas City is getting a streetcar line, Jackson County Executive Mike Sanders is ready to double down his political career on a more ambitious $650 million collection of rails, trails and buses."
Behind the scenes . . .
EVERYBODY IN KANSAS CITY POLITICS KNOWS THAT THE COUNTY EXECUTIVE DOESN'T HAVE THE VOTES TO PASS ANY TRANSIT MEASURE BUT HE LOVES GETTING HEADLINES FOR GOOD INTENTIONS!!!
This "reporting" isn't really news . . . More like tribute to a shrewd politico who has ruled over local government that has provided a place to more than a few former Kansas City newsies and their family members.
On the bright side, we respect The County Executive for his success at earning nice headlines without spending hundreds of millions for a silly toy train.
DEVELOPING . . . But not really.
