They want nine years to improve the schools up to 82% in English and 74% in math? Are the boons in the Kansas City school district that stupid. It must be impossible to get them up to 100% or is that asking to much. God help us all

OK, go to the STAR story about Westport after hours, scroll down to the 2nd photo. It's by Shane Keyser, c. kcstar.com

And what is appears to show, behind our cops, is a bunch of underage black teens. Loitering in the street. In the middle of the night. They are not IN the bars till 3am, because they are not admitted ever.

Tony, please recap for me--all these Westport shootings--aren't they in the STREET rather than in the BARS? So it stands to reason, there's no reason to close the bars early--the PROBLEM WITH GUNS IN WESTPORT IS IN THE PUBLIC STREETS. Where the law now says one cannot wand for weapons--including guns AND KNIVES, a new popular choice.

The problem in Westport's streets is idle youth. No where to party affordably. The well-rested unemployed. Bored. Resentful. Hair-trigger tempered. Ill-mannered. Unsupervised. Never properly parented. Sassy-mouthed. spoiling for a fight. The mayor can't throw them a pizza party EVERY night. And it will only get worse when we have the Fight Club Free Trolley four blocks to the east, on Main St.--to the Plaza and out south, in 2019. (Barring, of course, federal funds.)

But Jolie Justus is running for mayor. (Sly is term limited.) She wants and expects the black vote. So she opposes privatizing Westport's playground.

A coalition of wiser Council members needs to privatize Pennsylvania Avenue there. Or change the name to West Prospect.

Ironic, since back in the 70's the finest restaurant in town was three doors south of that intersection, serving Bonnie Winston's awesome spinach and peanut salad to the intelligentsia of KC at: The Prospect!

I have to agree with Tracy why are all those people being allowed to just hang around in the streets? What there isn't any no loitering laws in Kansas City? If you're not spending any money then move your broke ass on over towards home.

Did i just read Tracy calling a spade a spade?
