TKC TOLD YOU SO!!! NEW KCI AIRPORT STALLED AS COSTS SKYROCKET AND EMPTY PROMISES & HYPE ABOUND!!!
And so on this December Sunday in 2018 the year of our Lord . . . Some prophesy from the comments and our journalism good times have come to pass.
To wit . . .
THE MOST KICK-ASS DENIZENS OF OUR BLOG COMMUNITY PREDICTED THE NEW KCI SINGLE-TERMINAL WOULD STALL AND COST WAY MORE CASH THAN ANYBODY PREDICTED AND NOW THAT TESTIMONY IS NEWS FACT!!!
Double confirmation . . .
The newspaper is just touting a cool graphic and old news in their Sunday edition that costs nearly 4 bucks and has less coupons than ever before . . .
KC Star: As costs rise, is KCI terminal project in trouble? Or moving right along?
We already covered the answer and it's equally sad that the only person left with any enthusiasm about the project is Mayor Sly on his way out of the door.
Meanwhile, old school progressive radio is touting the carrot & stick in South KC . . .
KCUR: South Kansas City Businesses Find Out How They Can Be Part Of Airport Construction
The answer for these pipe dreams . . .
Only lawyers and fly-by-night construction front companies really profit from KCMO projects.
Reality . . .
Already the new airport has turned into one of the most corrupt schemes in Kansas City history that threatens to ruin one of this town's most important resources.
What we know for sure . . .
- The airport environmental assessment is incomplete and DEFINITELY pushes the project back.
- The use and lease agreement has been rejected and the terms & negotiations are tougher than Mayor Sly will admit.
- The cost is getting out of control and threatens to price out smaller airlines who are fighting for survival. Meanwhile, stifling small airlines is pretty much the point for Southwest - The architect of this FAILED deal.
The only thing that'll help solve this problem is the next election if only because bigger biz will soon have a better idea of who they need to "influence" in the future.
Worst of all . . . Local media are still pretending that voters have anything to do with this process now that it's mostly a backdoor affair. Ew.
