Kansas City Still Booming?!?!?

Sketchy premise from Fox News argues for the Heartland economy and lower cost of living but on the ground level our blog community can see that advantage quickly fading. However, this report simply confirms the same problems confronting this town are even worse across the nation.

Context:

Gilded Age 2.0: U.S. Income Inequality Increases to Pre-Great Depression Levels

And then a few local references here:

Don't put flyover country in a corner. It's leading America's urban boom.

KCMO is definitely booming in the hood. Murder rate ahead of all previous years. People can hear many booms each night. This activity provides KCMO with enough momentum to reach top 5 murder rate nationwide.

KC booming?!? We have a narrative here! It can’t be booming because it’s tiring into Detroit!!! It’s a democratic mayor who we hate! It can’t be booming because we say do! What about the crime? The potholes? The snow removal? Our blog posters are right not Fox News!!!! This can’t be!!!!!!!!

Crime is booming. Parked one block away from the Sprint Center for the Blake Shelton concert and it only took three hours for the thieves to break my car windows. I thought I would be safe with the cold weather, that the thugs would remain indoors. Wrong. Welcome to Kansas City - just don't park anywhere in downtown, especially that shithole Jazz District. Uber everywhere or don't go.
