Just like the Chamber swells, the downtowners love to have dinners and ceremonies to give each other awards and tell one another just how visionary and, well, swell, they really are.
But if these folks want to really thank the heroes who made all those half-empty buildings downtown possible, they're going to have to have a lot more plaques and plastic baubles made.
The REAL heroes are the KCMO taxpayers, who, without their own consent, have paid, are paying, and will be paying for decades for all of this "success".
