WHO DO YOU THINK WON THIS KANSAS CITY TWITTER POLITICAL SLAPFIGHT?!?!
It was strange to see Mayor Sly James taking political criticism so personally. Did El Bryan's comments resonate?
The problem with social media beef is that there's very little resolution or room to find common ground.
Accordingly, we challenge our blog community to weigh in with something more thoughtful than 140-character-snark, insults or chatter . . .
Moreover, with this town facing a myriad of problems including a murder spike, outrage over taxpayer subsidy and an epidemic of violence hitting the Midtown Corridor . . . Maybe asking Twitter or the Internets for a solution is far too much to expect . . . Especially given that the crux of this online discussion seems to be the waning popularity of Mayor Sly James.
