Zach Bauman It's a great relief to eat a simple, well-prepared meal that isn't trying to impress the neighbors. I've grown tired of restaurants "elevating" classic dishes, an inane descriptor that seems to be industry shorthand for "putting a short rib on it." I'm ready to bring them back down to earth.

Gee, after the Google Data Center "construction Jobs" are over, the KCMO Taxpayers will only be on the hook for $600,000,000.00
(or, viewed another way, we're only risking $20,000,000.00 per job for the 30 jobs that will be created.)

Thanks, PortKC, thanks Jon Stephens - maybe Mike Shanin will let you explain how great this deal is on the next Ruckus broadcast.

Oh, and when the hell are we going to get a Port?

Google has $170 Billion in assets. $135 Billion in yearly revenue. They need public assistance to build the place.

"Port KC" is just another make-believe public agency that was created to help the KCMO electeds give away the taxpayers' money.
It's funded by casino revenue and has provided nice obscure cushy jobs for insiders for decades.
Of course, the money could much better be used if it were a part of the city's general fund, at least if the KCMO general fund had anything at all to do with funding basic services, which unfortunately it does not.
This will be another huge subsidy for an incredibly wealthy out-of-town corporation which will jerk around the locals until it is no longer profitable to do so, and then bail.
Move along.
Nothing much different to see here.
It never changes.
