TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! DOWNTOWN KANSAS CITY BUILDING BOOM BREEDS GROWING POPULATION OF RATS!!!



Real estate speculation brings about all kind of unsavory characters and one particular type of vermin other than streetcar consultants has terrified locals so much that they've sent a note our way.

Here's the word . . .

"TKC, just want to let you know that your city is now a haven for rats and mice . . . We parked in a darkly lit and probably dangerous lot in order to get to our downtown restaurant promptly. The meal was wonderful and the service was excellent. We even received a strange offer to be escorted back to our car by the management just to ensure our safety. There was still some light outside so there wasn't really a need for the precaution. But I guess they weren't worried about thieves but instead the disgusting wildlife that's now running all around downtown eateries. ON THE WAY TO BACK TO OUR CAR THERE WERE NEARLY HALF A DOZEN RATS AND MICE SCURRYING AROUND THE OUTSIDE OF A VERY EXPENSIVE DOWNTOWN RESTAURANT! HOW DISGUSTING! On our way home we passed through the downtown area on our way back to safety and noticed even more rats lurking around the street in plain view. Even along the streetcar line. I hate to say it, but Kansas City has a rat problem and I haven't seen this reported anywhere else. It's something you need to bring to people's attention or it will only get worse. Public health and the image of KC is at risk here . . . This neglect of basic sanitation is totally unacceptable and something that will keep me from coming back to Kansas City for a long time . . ."

And so . . .

A PLAGUE OF RATS THREATENS KANSAS CITY AND OUR BLOG COMMUNITY IS FIRST TO WARN OF THIS NASTY MENACE THAT EVEN ATTACKS DOWNTOWN HIGH-CLASS DENIZENS!!!

Like it or not this is a by-product of the "density" which Kansas City urban planners fetishize.

During the heyday of downtown there were rats the size of small dogs lurking beneath the streets and underground canals of Kansas City and their ancestors, clearly, live on this day.

You've been warned.

Mike Burke and his relatives do not go downtown when it is still light out. You must have seen something else.

We've known this for a long time. Overran the city decades ago. A particular sub-species called Democ-Rats.

Municipalities everywhere have seen an increase in vermin. It's a result of milder winters yielding an abundance of food, and also vacant properties harboring shelter for them.

Sly is counting them as tourist and streetcar riders.

Those are the worst kind of rats, mayor, city manager and council rats! Crooked lyin politicians by day and disease spreading rats by night!

Soon to be followed by plagues of blood, frogs, and boils.

Did you see any feral cats?

One of the things that the southerners were smart about was that the textile mill where I worked also "employed" several feral cats.

Rodents are a fact of life in every city. Sorry the rats had the nerve to cross these diners' gaze. Gentrification has some side effects. The dirty little secret is every structure is a potential haven for mice and rats. No city has enough money to completely fix the problem, and each property owner is on their own. If you think the problem doesn't occur in Overland Park or Perfect Village, dream on.

Hyde Park has feral cats and the problem there is, some of the residents put food out for them daily, the cats don't eat the food the rats do. I saw one on my neighbors porch where they keep the cat food, it was the size of a small cat.

Every city has rats but it's not normal to see them in packs running around the streets or in residential neighborhoods. Sounds like it's an over abundance for some reason or another. I don't even see rats when I drive on country highways around corn fields at night.

TKC missed a great opportunity to make a Boomtown Rats reference.

Geldoff and Co made some great music in that outfit.

Was one of them way fatter than all the rest and wearing a bow tie? Did a rat named Byron have his lips attached to the fat rat's ass?
