wait....kansas is doing well? the local newspaper doesn't give that impression.

condidering the amount of time the newspaper spends criticizing kansas and the paltry coverage of good news, they're off balance.

i feel like i really learn more about what's going on in kc, both kcmo snd kcks, in the business newspaper cited.

moreover, the business newspaper usually doesn't have yocals taking up space with hand-me-down news and opinions on national politics.
