Northeast is the ghetto and without strong leadership in Kansas City it always will be. So don't hold your breath, it's never going to be anything but the ghetto.

Nice try though, but I don't think anyone is going to fall for it.

Overland Park has known this was coming for eight years, and they're "surprised" that it may happen?

When the Chinese bought Sprint and installed a Hispanic whose only experience has always been packaging companies for resale the fire sale sign was posted on the door. The only surprise is that it took that long for the economy to recover enough to make the sale feasible.

Will the Johnson County Ostriches now pull their heads out of the sand (or wherever) and see if something can now be salvaged?
After all, they have had eight years to develop contingency plans, surely a 57% drop in job numbers gave them some sort of warning.

Maybe they'll be able to use the tactic that the "Kansas Side" has used since the 1940s and figure out some way to shift the costs of their mistake to the Kansas City, MO taxpayers. After all don't we exist only for the purpose of providing amenities for the Kansas residents?

The old northeast is a ghetto and will always be the ghetto until someone gentrifies the shit out of it.
