"Overland Park landed at No. 4 on its Best Cities to Live in America list. The Johnson County suburb got an overall A-plus grade and high marks for its strong public schools and family friendly community, but it received a mediocre grade for crime and safety."

"Columbia, Missouri, came in at No. 25 on Niche’s Best Cities list, with an overall A grade from Niche. Like Overland Park, the mid-Missouri city was noted for its good schools and being good for families, but received a C for crime and safety."

If mediocre grades for crime and saftey get you to #4, even worse the shithole Columbia to #25, then Qball should have gotten KC to #1 hands down.

Why are these idiots at Niche? Is that some home for mental patients?

The "cancellation" of the fair was a huge mark against Parson. However, that said, it was really just cancellation of recreational activities. It was BS that the Matheson Center and Horticulture Bldg shut down, but all the 4H and livestock activities went on as normal. The equipment displays were basically non existent, but that allowed for old-skool fairground parking. Still plenty of vendors for eats and stuff. It was a really good time, still quite a few people. Just flew under the radar of the urban center alarmists and thus didn't get the "super spreader event" tag. Frankly, I wouldn't particularly care if the midway and rec events got cancelled again this year. Just leave traditional fair activities alone.
