Kansas City Suffers One Hundred Years Of Divisive Urban Core Troubles

A legacy of crime, corruption and failed solutions devised by the mediocre middle-class mark this town's history . . . Here's a quick recollection for #TBT:

The Kansas City we know today started taking shape in 1920

For a while now, I've been collecting every local history book I come across. After a year of acquisitions in anticipation of this issue, which marks the centennial of this city as we know it today, I thought I had a pretty good library. Then I walked into the Missouri Valley Room.

Then you read an article that the KC metro is ranked 18th internationally in the best cities on earth.

Proving once again, that if you do the same things, the same way, with the same people, you'll get the same results.
And what sketchy proposals are coming from the east side "leadership" today?
Ho about another couple hundred million for 18th and Vine?
