Drove by the Junk Yard in the Northland that the article calls a House, didn't look like there had been any fire at the location. So I made a point of driving by again (slowly) on my return, there wasn't any evidence of a fire at all. It's a STONE House!

The only fire there must have been Larry Dilts' pants blazing!

Hope Channel 41 keeps some heat on the City, three years is far too long for this bad a situation to have been ignored, even in Kansas City!

Don't really have much hope, though. This mess is in the Northland, and for at least the past 45 years the City has done its best to ignore the entire area completely!

Considering that the 39% of KC's population in the Northland provides 68% of the City's revenues (not even counting the $ from the Airport), and less that 16% of the City's Budget was spent north of the River last year, it becomes easier to understand why there is a growing call for DE-ANNEXATION, doesn't it?

Gerrymander (illegally under your own rules) all you want, split districts up to force under representation all you want (What ya gonna do when more than 50% of KC lives north?),and continue to slander the Northland residents all you want, but the Northland is diverse in population but united in anger, and becoming more and more closely united in our dissatisfaction with the shenanigans of "Baja KC".
