Self-Interest And Kansas City Voting?!?!

Helling notes that paying higher taxes for the greater good is quickly going out of style amid ongoing harsh times:

What's in it for Kansas City's voters?

It's a mostly nice column that politely steps around the fact that voters are starting to think "me-first" just like politicos and consultants.

Helling actually gets paid to write this drivel?

Good god, even my first grader understands self-interest.

Who really gives a fuck what Helling thinks? Tony hates his ass that's why he puts his shit in here all the time knowing us readers will trash Hellings ass.

I agree with 7:05. Posing the airport and streetcar votes as a matter of self-interest is highly questionable when neither is necessary and both are a waste of money. I just read a book called "Grain Brain." I think Helling's been eating way too much gluten.

OK, I'll be the opposing voice on this one.

Yes, in this article, Helling is merely reading the tea leaves which are apparent to most who are paying attention to the public debate on streetcars and the airport terminal reconfiguration.

So, while he may be stating the obvious, it's commonsense and straightforward, which is much MORE than what you'd get from the other Falling Stars.

Helling is the cleanest shirt in the Star's dirty laundry pile.

Had to comment on this one,

"Helling is the cleanest shirt in the Star's dirty laundry pile."
