no, no, no, say it ain't so.

kcmo and its emerging downtown urban space are the natural place that the dynamic vibe young professionals are seeking, as described in recent articles about the decline of small towns.

but what if unchecked crime and dystopian government scare the young professionals away?


the state school well-educated young people from our region are serious, well-scrubbed, and informed. they'd love to live downtown in kcmo and thereby become taxpayers and solid citizens while enjoying the dynamic vibe.

but they're used to being safe and having things work, so if they get scared off, they're gone and downtown will fail as a bubble of unfulfilled dreams.

Notice the media never shows a long-shot of the "crowd" at these events. It's always described as an enthusiastic bunch enjoying the music, but the crowds are always pretty small. And it's dangerous to be sitting out in the shooting gallery, waiting for some drive-by bullets to come your way. No thanks, Kansas City. I'll enjoy my music at home where I'm safer.

^^^Thanks for staying home. I don't need you out when I'm out. Stay afraid chicken little, stay afraid. P.S. How do you know the crowds are always pretty small if you don't ever go out? You are another of a long list of idiots who post on here. Moron.

"common consumption areas" and "concealed weapons", great mix.

What could go wrong?

Oh and Brownback does not want you to have any fun!
