TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! CONTROVERSIAL KANSAS CITY TRANSIT ORDINANCE CONFRONTS COUNCIL OPPOSITION NOW THAT IT TURNS OUT THE TOY TRAIN STREETCAR IS A LEMON!!!
The brand new Kansas City toy train streetcar has broken down at least four times on record since its debut earlier this month. If it was a car, the owners would most likely return the troubled vehicle with protection under Missouri's Lemon Law.
Like it or not, it seems that yesterday's Kansas City toy train streetcar breakdown and emergency maintenance is only the beginning of toy train streetcar trouble as Eurotrash transit is more prone to problems and delays that Midwestern Americans can't even begin to comprehend or accept . . . I.E. Kansas City is a lot more uptight than Spaniards who don't have anywhere in particular to be on time . . .
To wit . . .
NOW THAT MORE KANSAS CITY RESIDENTS AND VOTERS ARE TROUBLED ABOUT THE REALITY OF THE OLD AND BUSTED TOY TRAIN STREETCAR . . . A TRANSIT RESOLUTION IS FACING SKEPTICISM FROM THE COUNCIL!!!
Remember that we talked about voter resistance to this effort from Council Lady Jolie Justus yesterday . . .
After our blog community broke the news, journalist Steve Vockrodt clowned the voter angst against the legislation . . . But word in the comments is that he's trying to find a safe place to land now that The Pitch is in trouble again. They say that he's going to take his snoozy brand of reporting to the Star which shouldn't help anybody out . . . But I digress . . .
Here's the important part . . .
Let's not forget that the streetcar cost two council dudes their jobs:
Both former Council Dude Glover and Councilman Dick Davis were strident supporters of this transit effort and were subsequently kicked out of office for their toy train support among many other concerns . . .
And so . . .
THE CURRENT CITY COUNCIL IS FAR MORE SKEPTICAL OF TOY TRAIN STREETCAR EXPANSION AND THIS ORDINANCE NOW CONFRONTS AN EFFORT TO POSTPONE OR KILL IT ALTOGETHER!!!
Beyond the glitzy grand opening and economic theory hype, the reality of the toy train streetcar has started to kick-in and the debate over expansion has been derailed by constant breakdowns and increasing voter opposition.
