TKC EXCLUSIVE AND BREAKING NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY DOWNTOWN STREETCAR LOOKS EMPTY AT SUMMER'S END!!! ARE WE ALREADY BORED WITH THE TOY TRAIN?!?

To wit . . .
IS KANSAS CITY ALREADY BORED WITH THE TOY TRAIN STREETCAR?!?!
Moreover . . .
KANSAS CITY ACTIVISTS CONSIDER DEMANDING AN INDEPENDENT AUDIT OF THE STREETCAR INCLUDING RIDERSHIP GIVEN THE CLEARLY RIGGED NUMBERS CITY HALL IS FOND OF TOUTING AND THE RISK OF ANOTHER $200 MILLION BASED ON HYPE AND CONSULTANT PAYOUTS!!!
What's even sweeter is that any politico signing on to the second corrupt TDD effort could find themselves in the same situation as former Councilmen Dick Davis and Jim Glover who were ousted from office for their streetcar enthusiasm over neighborhood concerns . . .
But the point here is simply one of observation . . .
The streetcar numbers are akin to the same stats from Visit KC that claim an IMPOSSIBLE 24 million tourists a year which is more than Denver or any other city this size . . . Fact is, most educated, critical thinkers who are not on the City Hall payroll realize these stats are phony . . . Luckily for City Hall, those kind of people are even more scarce than streetcar riders nowadays.
