Steve Rose: Burns & Mac Is The Best!!!

While most locals didn't like the NO-BID effort at City Hall corruption, JoCo's most important pundit touts the virtues of this engineering juggernaut with corporate suits who ranks among his high powered neighbors. You decide . . .

Steve Rose: Burns & McDonnell plan may be Kansas City's best bet for a new airport terminal

The plan for KCI has been languishing for years. Nobody but Burns & McDonnell had the vision and courage to step forward and take the risk of building a new single-terminal airport for Kansas City with no financial exposure to the city or its taxpayers.

Just another fake journalist flacking for his buds at the country club.
Rose is just one of the many reasons the Star has fallen as far as it has.

Doesn't he live in Johnson county? He wants to keep it in kcmo because the thurston Howell III of joco don't want the traffic or noise that will disturb their golf games at the country club

7:19 Dead on the money.

Rose is a Vietnam Vet, so, I say this with respect, but, gimme a fuckin break. "Take the risk..."???

What risk? Are they doing it for free?

Leave that air port alone, fix what is there and be good stewards of tax payer cash. Do NOT tell us, that it won't cost us anything.

That is a lie.

Rose is a jack-off. I don't give a fuck if he is a vet or not. I say this with no respect for the cocksucker.

Not just him but most of the newspaper people have that retread aura as they try to appear relevant.

Fake news as always. I have to agree with 9:23. He's a jackoff. The airport just needs some updating. Not a billion dollar rebuild. Missourians will get screwed. Count on it.

I invoke the "Swiss Challenge" to find a better mayor and city manager immediately!

Anonymous said...

they're presenting swiss challenge as a standard way of doing things. it's not.

it's rare and obviously for rigged deals.

Anonymous said...

if they know about swiss challenge, the city council must be finance geniuses capable of understanding the unique private financing approach without outside expertise.

what a bluff.

it has enough risks to have a probability of really screwing kci flyers and maybe kcmo taxpayers.

He has never earned a legitimate Dollar in his life everything he has is from his father and his father's intelligence to build where he built mr. Rose sold the place for a gazillion dollars to a spa displacing all of his workers he does not know nothing about employment only how to end their jobs so fuck off mr. Rose your opinion is neither wanted or needed you are a parasite to the city of Kansas City

And I want to know what did he do with all of his profits from the sale of the newspaper and the building did he convert that back into money for public use or did he put it in his pocket for private cuz if you care about your community you will reinvest your money

Writing for the Star is an ignominious career end for someone who once tried to start a daily newspaper to teach the raggy Star a lesson.

He and the B&M bigwigs live in Kansas, so it's so nice of them to be helping Kansas City, MO out.

He's a likeable guy, but just wrong most of the time and somewhat sorry in trying to be relevant.

Steve, a resident of Kansas, is always trying to convince the dummies in KCMO to pay for stuff so he and his fellow Kansans can enjoy without any investment on their part. I think Steve-O should push hard for the Johnson County Airport. If he starts NOW, he can have it up and running by 2050. First he has to find enough land with no houses nearby. Then he has to convince JoCo taxpayers to cough up money. Finally, he has to lure the airlines to this Wonderland on the Plains. He can name the thing, "Not KCI Airport" and spend many golden hours dining and shopping.

Steve Rose, a rose of another color, who his whole life has never ever been able to bloom.

maybe the mayor and city council like to dine and shop at airports.

it's probably an expense account item for them.

but frequent flyers don't go to airports to dine or shop. they just want convenience.

kci has convenience.

note no on an inconvenient terminal.
