Ah yes, and the streetcar is the cause of global warming as well.

Why would we think of you as anything other that unbiased?

Oh, and by the way, Big Foot was spotted at the same time near the City Market.

"I felt like we were going to blow up," said Nicole Ammer of City Market Coffee House who said she heard a popping noise and ran outside to shoot video on her cell phone.

Not very bright is she.

Was she doing latte foam art or just serving beardos and faux lumberjacks when the rumbling started?

Nothing to see here. Just installing the new tracks for the new street car that you voted for.

Such a shame that so many consultants can't find real work so they have latched onto this project.

It's like KCMO political welfare.

Sorry. Mensa Boy (aka HC & 6:01) has finally become such a self-parody that it's just about impossible to parody him.

People downtown want a walk able neighborhood with a streetcar. Sez the developer living in a secluded and exclusive L.A. canyon with private gated drive and and a Mercedes and Maserati in the garage.

Please Jesus, forgive us our sins.

Please, please let our families overcome the hate, the Federal Government. Please let the Feds look the other way when State authorities enforce laws that Americans, an ever diminishing, shrinking of Americans, who still, in the face of the hate from The Federal Government, who arrest and disparage those citizens who think borders are important, please, please let us hide.

We are afraid.

The IRS, the Feds, the President, hate us. We are white for the most part, that makes us a target.

One more thing Jesus, let us grow some balls.

We hate ourselves, we hate the color white.

I am too scared to print my name.

Hey 610, I am the HARD Charger, and I don't know Russ Johnston from Bigfoot.

When you guess, make sure you are correct.

Jesus, what a read this batch of comments is!

What do they do to make you people that way, put something in the water supply?

Abcnkc said...

Do we get all our money back if the Tinkertown Trolley doesn't pass August 5, 2014?

We have most likely seen the last of our elected officials that aren't term limited out until then. We are smarter than they thought we were.

Light Rail yes, tourist fru fru no.

If 8:28's telling the truth, there are TWO nutcases running wild with our tax dollars. Of course that begs the question--why did you assume you were being mistaken for Russ if you don't know him from Bigfoot? Or is Russ suffering from multiple personality disorder and you're just one of them?

Well a street car is old technology that we paved over the tracks in the 60s and 70s.
