TKC SATURDAY NIGHT PLAYLIST!!! STREETCAR EXTENSION FACT CHECK: KANSAS CITY COLLEGE MILLENNIALS TOUTING TOY TRAIN PART DEUX ALREADY ENJOY FREEBIE BUS RIDES!!!



Here's a brilliant insight from one of the most KICK-ASS denizens of our blog community noting a a few important facts often forgotten in our transit discussion along with a reality check about the nature and background of the most strident toy train extension activists . . .

"The millennials are complaining that they want a streetcar to UMKC even though most of them won't live in Kansas City beyond four years after they graduate.

"Ironic that they need a streetcar when all three of these schools get unlimited free rides on the bus, not only to school, but to entertainment and anywhere else they go.

"Does this sound like PRIVILEGE Speaking?"

And this inspires our playlist tonight which includes TKC old-school faves from around the time of my Kangaroo tenure along with college radio classics . . .



As always, thanks for reading this week and have a safe and fun Saturday night.

Here's a question for you Tk: If it doesn't work when it rains, what good is it?

I agree with the council member who said that we need further study of the streetcar. Let's talk about this at the one year mark after we can have more realistic discussion. Also, why can't we have a city wide vote on it? I think that our city has seen the good the streetcar can do and we will want to continue our progress not only to revive the downtown but extend the development and financial progress to our midtown areas.

Why is it the shit heels who never pay for anything are the very ones who call me an ass hole and expect me to pay for more. Fuck them. If they want to have a train maybe they should show thier interest by laying the track.

8:52PM - I don't understand your comment. Buses routinely stop during heavy winter storms. Subway closes in New York during rare events. Last night, the National Weather Service - for the first time ever - issued a Flood Emergency for downtown Kansas City. We're going to ding the streetcar for suspending service during this emergency?

8:54PM - I think a city-wide vote on the streetcar extension would be a grand idea. But I also think the folks that will be left picking up the tab and likely using it the most should have more say on the matter.

The bus rides aren't free Tony. They are part of the excessive tuition.


And please advise your readers to stop contacting the Kansas City Atheist Coalition on matters of this nature.

They will have no comment to make on this.

Or any other relevant issue.

HOWEVER, if you see the kids from International House of Prayer Preaching praying, handing out bibles or other offensive religious material on any public property please contact:

President Joshooa Hid or,

Activist Director Stew.


Thank you for your cooperation.

9:05: First, are streetcars more or less reliable than buses?

Second, you say, " I also think the folks that will be left picking up the tab and likely using it the most should have more say on the matter." How do you address the fact that in the "special elections" proposed by trolley boy and his minions, property owners who don't live in the "special districts" but who will be picking up the tab don't get to vote?

UMKC students don't ride the buses for free. They voted to enact a new student fee which mostly subsidizes part of the bus system. I bet 90% of students (or more) don't ride the bus.

9:05 - buses pull over only when the deluge is so bad that the driver can't see the roadway. NYC subways run continuously; they stop only for repairs, maintenance and Hurricane Sandy. The streetcar does not run when it rains. Which of these is unlike the other two?
