SHOCK!!! NEXTRAIL KC GOT SPANKED!!!
Kansas City toy train streetcar supporters have now started inventing phony numbers to support their cause.
Recently, they were called out on some of their propaganda and they quickly retreated . . .
Remember . . . The Show-Me blog pointed out fake numbers being used by NextRail KC.
Now the page on the site has gone dark.
Here's a bit of bragging:
"Not only does the information provide no detail on how it was collected, but the table attached isn’t even properly tabulated. Simple arithmetic (we used a calculator) indicates that their table yields $791 million in development and 1,984 housing units. (The summary they provide is $879 million and 1,997, respectively. They even mis-tabulate the numbers provided in their legend. What did Kansas City pay for this?)"
We noticed this morning that the link on NextRailKC has been taken down. So we’ve edited our post and provided the original flawed NextRailKC document here.
Question . . .
Once again toy train advocates are playing fast and loose with the facts and figures . . . Are these the same people affiliated with digging up unmapped Downtown Kansas City streets? I hopes they exercise a bit more caution in that endeavor.
