I don't know if Kraske is just an idiot or if he is on the Chamber of Commerce payroll. How can you say KC is on a roll? The only place it's on a roll is the areas that have been highly subsidized. There is not one neighborhood in KC south of the river that you can send a kid to a decent public school. over half of the area south of the river is so crime ridden that even nice homes sell for next to nothing. Westport has been destroyed, the Plaza is next. If your idea of a city on the roll is a downtown playground built at the expense of the remainder of the city then I cannot take him seriously.
