The showme institute needs to get their message out to the public in a bigger and better way. If they can do this the public can make better decisions and discover the corporate fraud that our city leaders are allowing for their own personal greed. These guys are brilliant when it comes to uncovering government waste, yes sLIE and big boy Troy this message is for you!

As long as our clueless uniformed citizens remain clueless and uninformed nothing will change.

The city is basically running right over them with the worst kind of abuse and racketeering imaginable.

Low taxes? Ward Parkway has its own private 1% TDD sales tax. Funny stuff....

Six restaurants in an overdressed food court in a mall which will be eventually overrun by hoodrats is hardly proof that development without incentives would translate to an entire city. As usual the ShoMe Institute fails to define what they would do to redevelop KC or St Louis. It's not enough to say that a free market economy will solve everything. There needs to be a vision, otherwise all you get is urban sprawl. Ward Parkway mall is a poor example.

Right now the showme institute is just trying to show us people the stupidity of our elected officials. They have ideas but can't get anybody to listen because of the corrupt officials confusing the public with their mumbo jumbo. When you have officials as corrupt as ours there's no way we could ever have a decent city to live and play in.
