  1. Just For the Record6/18/18, 9:16 AM

    Just like the NYT to do another fluff story on poor me for being black. Gary Indiana located 25 miles from downtown Chicago is over 80% black. Only 36% of the residents have a high school education. Yes Gary has turned into a slum but nobody knows why. Their murder rate runs at just less than 50 a year but the population is just 1/6th of what Kansas City is. So why is Gary Indiana such a dump to live in with it's poverty rate of 35%?

  6. Actually, Makers Faire will never be the largest event of invention and creativity.
    That prize locally goes to Hernandez pr flacking at KCMO city hall.
    Second place? The streetcar "authority".
    Next up? The visitor clowns claiming 25 million tourists a year.
    And then, pretty much any "reporting" done by the Star.
    Competition for outright BS locally is really fierce.

  7. ^^Boring. Yawn. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
