MUST SEE!!! POWER BROKER JASON GRILL DECLARES KANSAS CITY NO LONGER FLYOVER COUNTRY!!!
It's not all bad news around this dump. Check out a bit of Kansas City enthusiasm from media and biz guru Jason Grill.
Flyover Country? Not This Kansas City...
"The Kansas City Metropolitan area is becoming the envy of individuals on the East and West coasts who have long since considered it merely flyover country. The City of Fountains has been praised as a great place to live, work and visit for many years, but recently it is becoming a hot bed for entrepreneurial investment, high culture and the innovations of the future."
This perspective is important because more than anybody else Mr. Grill defines the boundless enthusiasm of Kansas City's "creative economy" touted by Mayor Sly James. Sure, it's easy to diss geeks like Staubio and his crew of buddies scheming for rigged consulting gigs but Jason Grill is far more impressive and has much better wardrobe and suit collection than those guys.
Still it's important to ask . . .
DOES JASON GRILL'S TAKE ON THE REPUTATION OF KANSAS CITY REPRESENT HOPE OR HYPE FOR THE FUTURE OF KANSAS CITY?!?!?
Kansas City cheerleaders claim that the streets of Downtown are paved with gold while skeptics point out the perils of so much irrational exuberance backed mostly by tax and development schemes. Meanwhile, Mr. Grill's success and upward trajectory represent an impressive level of accomplishment which serves as the benchmark for discussion of Kansas City's creative economy progress.
