KANSAS CITY JJ'S INFERNO MEGAPOST!!! OPINIONS, LINKS AND AFTERMATH!!!



The massive explosion and fire that destroyed JJ's is the only thing to talk about this morning . . .

To wit . . .

WE'VE BEEN TALKING TO KANSAS CITY INSIDERS AND WITNESSES AND HERE ARE THE TOP MONEY QUOTES THAT PERFECTLY CAPTURE LOCAL SENTIMENT FOLLOWING THE HOT MESS!!!

First up . . . A bit of practicality . . .

"So, I guess the smart money is going to dump all of your MGE stock in the morning."

A quick message about our discourse . . .

"I wonder how your commenters are going to find a way to blame this one on Black people and hip-hop."

Eco-Devo concerns . . .

"This is the only tragedy in local history where a fully funded TIF request was drawn up last night in order to help the victims of this disaster."

Transit and infrastructure are always a Kansas City concern . . .

"I don't envy Downtown Biz on the streetcar line where crews will be digging up the road for the next year.Given this explosion, the toy train line is starting look like a mine field."

Finally . . . It's all about lunch time . . .

"Somebody should tell the lawyers and advertising execs on the Plaza that JJ's taking reservations today."

And now, check the relevant links that define the JJ'S Inferno tragedy this morning.

Is it true that Tracy Ward is alleging that the JJ's fire and explosion was caused by a drone strike?

Anonymous said...

No, this isn't the fault of "Black People and Hip/Hop".

But here is another quote.

"Even while the fire was burning, the rest of the city was STILL being fucked up by Black People and Hip/Hop, we were just distracted."

Now that the fire is out, Black People will continue, as they did during the fire, to fuck shit up.

This is a shame. We need to work on how to deal with tragedies better in KC.

A privacy advocate said...

We do not know whether it was a drone strike and cover-up so do not make fun of Tracy Ward you asshole.

The Trammps said...

We didn't do it.

We were visiting JJ's dumb fuckin earring in rehab.

I didn't even see the coverage... because I really don't watch local news. I'm always watching cable. It was just a fire. So what?

Did I read that local stations, in ratings this month, covered it wall to wall? ONE RESTAURANT that MOST Kansas Citians have never been to?

Can you imagine that New York TV stations would spend all day on a single building fire? I don't think so.

KC can be SOOO bush league. It's a big story, all right. Worth the lead on the next newscast. But it's not the SECOND COMING OF CHRIST! Israel hasn't invaded Iran!

What's the matter with local TV News Directors? think LESS about your ratings and think MORE about good newsjudgment and perspective!

It was something DIFFERENT than niggers killing niggers, at least it was a change.

Save Our Plaza!!!!

It was only a distraction to cover up the fact that a brigade of evil unicorns used a flying bunny drone to strike the restaurant.

When all is said and done the blame will fall on some union puke that couldn't operate a backhoe.

Bigger question is if the odor of gas was strong in the area beginning at 1:00 pm why in the hell would anybody that lives or works in that area not get the hell out. STUPID!

Was there anything for the thugs to loot on the Plaza last night? Was it too cold?

Was the contractor laying Google Fiber?

I had an experience with MGE over a year ago about property on the Streetcar route and it quickly became apparent they had no idea where the gas lines were only crude pencil sketches and they were incorrect.

The infrastructure of Kansas City is rotting, the Eastside has become a war zone, businesses are leaving Kansas City in mass but we still need the toy train and tax breaks for the fucking Kemper and Hall families but everything is just right, Mr. Mayor?

The Plaza is just the newest River Quay....It's the mob!!!

Shit, natural gas explosion. WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THAT??????????

Anonymous said...

I too have spoken to MGE workers about the gas lines under the streetcar route. They said it's multiple explosions just waiting to happen when the digging starts. They said the pipes are so old and rusted the vibrations will cause them to crack and rupture.

So who is liable to pay to repair damages to buildings if this happens to someone's property?

Especially a fire that was out in 2 hours. Oh well, dat what sweeps do...

IT WAS A DRONE STRIKE said...


An after-the-fact DRONE STRIKE.

Some PINK HAIRED dimwit started yapping about it soon after-the-fact, and was....

.....DRONING ON-AND-ON ABOUT IT.

All I want to know is are they going to open up a Subway on the plaza now or what?

Anonymous said...

No, I heard a rumor that Harold Penner was going to build a new store there. Gotta get the black folk back to the plaza.....

LATE BREAKING INVESTIGATIVE!!!!

In the rush to be first....one TV station reported that a "ho" backed into a gas main!
Later they corrected themselves with "it's now believed a backhoe struck a gas main or line."
