TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! KANSAS CITY 10-10-10 REOPEN PLANS FAIL ON FIRST DAY!!!
The reviews are in and Kansas City's "new normal" for doing biz has been an abysmal failure.
One Westport merchant earned social media celebration for his estimation of the new rules:
"Dr. Rex and Mayor Quinton want me to run my business like a soup line. It's not going to work. This is the worst of both worlds. I'm losing out on benefits that are available if I'm closed and forced to limp along as if I'm doing business in some Cold War Eastern-Bloc Communist country."
Do your own research and find the quote yourself, it has over 100 shares and about 500 comments at the time of this writing.
But more important than a whiny biz dude is the "analysis" of our blog community . . .
ARE THE KANSAS CITY 10-10-10 REGULATIONS VIABLE UNTIL THERE'S A CORONAVIRUS VACCINE?!?
We offer that benchmark given that MSM seems to report that there's no real relief in sight until that point.
Here are more optimistic resources to inform local opinion:
