The Star's columnist seem to be all about supporting losing causes lately. They've backed up Semler and her many racist supporters who like to spam message boards. And now Yael Abouhalkah is trying to poke holes in the plans or lack thereof of the Indy Schools if or when their plea to leave the clutches of the KC School District passes - However, as we've seen in one televised crisis after the next, during a tense situation the best plan is simply to run in the opposite direction when there is disaster and that seems like a good enough strategy as far as KCMO Schools are concerned.
Finally, Steve Penn is playing PR Flack once again for the 18th and Vine Jazz District without a shred of financial evidence to back him up. Why? Because 18th and Vine has been a drain on KC since day one and there's no way it'll ever turn around now. In fact, with so many new developments moving downtown it's likely the place will merit even less attention from local leaders and might soon be boarded up once again after wasting MILLIONS in KC money on two of the MANY LOCAL MUSEUMS THAT CAN'T SUSTAIN THEMSELVES.
