MUST READ: "The Emperor’s New Airport"
Show-Me Daily post an EXCEPTIONAL analysis of Mayor Sly's Kansas City airport plan . . . Or lack thereof . . .
The Emperor’s New Airport
"Just like the old ministers in Hans Christian Anderson’s “The Emperor’s New Clothes,” (KMBZ Radio Host Scott) Parks states the obvious — doing so almost apologetically. But he is exactly right. If proponents want to argue that the airport is unattractive as a hub — a place where people make connections to other flights but not itself a destination — a shiny new terminal will not address that problem. It will only exacerbate the problem if it results in higher costs to airlines who are already being lured elsewhere with cash."
In one instance after the next, the arguments supporting the new Airport have been refuted and the "adult discussion" called for by Mayor Sly James has failed to bring forth any overwhelming reason to build a new airport that nobody wants. Instead, politicos refuse to answer any questions and a great many in Kansas City are silent about the fact that Mayor Sly is metaphorically "naked" on this issue and without a stitch of support from anybody other than developers or City Hall bureaucrats.
