Kemper Arena Redux And Mariner Tribute: City Hall Ready To Come To Yet Another Kansas City Forgone Conclusion
Kansas City Democracy (or at least its illusion) is dying a slow and painful death amid the current epoch of corporate greed and insider connections @ City Hall.
The latest example:
Council committee will recommend Kemper Arena's fate in 90 days
"A Kansas City council committee has decided to lead a study to determine the fate of Kemper Arena. Rather than ask Mayor Sly James to appoint another commission, such as the recently formed airport and streetcar commissions, the Planning, Zoning and Economic Development Committee decided Wednesday to vet two competing proposals for the arena site itself."
TKC TRANSLATION: It's already a DONE DEAL and Mariner Kemper might already be looking at sketches and architectural plans from his Colorado chateau high atop a pile of money.
Remember . . . KICK-ASS KANSAS CITY INSIDERS told us that most of the local political elite are already behind the plan.
More in a bit . . .

Future of Kemper Arena still up in the air
