TKC QUESTION: ARE THE NEW KANSAS CITY SINGLE-TERMINAL AIRPORT SKETCHES WORTH ONE BILLION DOLLARS???
Let's contemplate the new set of drawings released by airport backers today.
These artsy renderings deserve special consideration because they could cost Kansas City big money for years to come if airlines spike prices and fees as the cost of traveling continues to skyrocket.
There's a cool new fountain that's doesn't have a racist name . . . I'm sure that's worth a few bucks.

And then . . .
And there's photos of a lounge which signals that this option is jam packed full of entertainment options to keep bored travelers entertained during their layovers. No word about a fair wage for all of the workers who might or might not laboring on graveyard shifts when most people are stuck at the airport without many options to escape . . .
BEST CRITICISM FROM FRIENDS OF THE BLOG:
ALL COTTON CANDY . . . IT LOOKS LIKE GEORGE JETSON-VILLE!!!
Still, overall THE NEW AIRPORT DESIGN LOOKS SMALLER and this anticlimactic presentation reveals that the campaign to thrust the plan on voters is lackluster at best.
