Newsflash: Fixing KCI Is Cheaper

Newspaper: Rehabbing KCI would cost about a third of the pricetag for a new terminal, official says - Money quote: "At $365 million to $460 million, fixing up the three existing terminals would be 30 to 38 percent of the cost of building a new, $1.2 billion terminal according to an estimate released Tuesday."

And that $365-$460 is for all three. Whack out another third if you only do two.

But that is not enough money for the contractors pushing this through the mayors office.

That makes to much good economic sense. Sly and crew won't like that.

PLEASE STANDBY for a Fael article opposing this idea.

WE MUST push through a single terminal, billion(+) dollar monstrosity, so that Fael can shop and dine at the airport.

They could probably do it for a hell of a lot less, but this is an ok compromise.

You cannot put a bronze plaque with your name on it for fixing KCI.

3:57 I talked about this the other day.

If he wants a statue, I could buy him a statue and put it my building on the train route and have flowers sent to it everyday before I die and still get away cheaper than this tax.

I have property. If he wants a road, I can name my roads after him. I will even pay for the sign.

I just can't afford his big ideas.

He wants a terminal at the airport named after him. Sure, we can name this the "james remodel".

This "James Remodel" makes me want bartles and james....products.

Mexicans can fix KCI in two weeks.

Mr.Tony,
Just how often does one go to KCI to shop?
That darn VanLoh has been systematically trashing KCI by ignoring basic maintenance. He is so desirous of lording over a new airport that he must wet himself several times a day.
