If the 25 million tourists stop coming, the toy train could also be impacted.

Of course, that minor detail should in no way affect plans to spend millions to extend the trolley line, because we have unlimited funds to put lipstick on this pig of a city, thanks to Sly and Qball.

Not a problem.
Most of the 25 million people who are counted as KCMO "tourists" the actually live in the metro or who are visiting from around the region.
Some from as far away as Omaha or Topeka!
The interstates are fine.
Of course, they'll be missing the millions of dollars of "art" at the new airport terminal and may be just visiting friends, but the Visit KC numbers clickers will be working overtime nonetheless.
The endless bubble of hype has to be refreshed daily.
