It's A Small New KCI After All: Imagineering Kansas City Airport Escalator Hype

Imagineering (from "imagination" and "engineering") is the implementation of creative ideas in practical form. The word was registered as a trademark of Disney Enterprises, Inc. in 1990 . . . And the phrase is also constantly mocked by smarter people because it's the opposite of creativity.

Kansas City Airport Officials Imagine Disney World-Style Transportation Around The New Terminal

As construction continues on a new terminal at Kansas City International Airport, aviation officials are considering different ways to make the trip from the parking lot to the terminal more efficient.

Where did this shit come from?
Every rendition of the "new" KCI that has been shown had the Parking Garage across a street from the Terminal.
Doesn't the "wonderful" plan provide enough parking? Hasn't that been checked up on before?
As far as the Rental Companies, they can provide a shuttle from a location at the Terminal AT THEIR OWN COST!

Absolutely no need to spend a penny on "Consultants" to plan anything like this.

By the time the consultants get done there won't be any money left for construction.

Yes, "World Class" creative and imaginative transportation options at the airport presented by a city government that can't even maintain an operating public water supply system.
Fantasyland on the plains.
When are the New York Times reporters coming to town?
The delusion continues.
And all at public expense.

Between the Council, Edgemoor, and the PR consultants paid to promote this nightmare, it's like a race between Mickey Mouse, Goofy, and Cruella de Vil!!!

Let’s call it the smell tube! Because it will stink badly every time somebody farts on it, or better yet, fill it with poisonous gas and kill everybody on it, doesn’t this sound like the dumbest idea evar, make easy targets for terrorists if that’s their intention.

^^^^ Yes we can, but don't feel bad about having to spend yet another Christmas by yourself, @9:32 - your reward will come in Heaven!

Now all you have to worry about is changing everything in your life so you stand a slight chance of getting there.
