Call this a Kansas City epiphany or blatant progressive hypocrisy . . . Either way: 

Hipsters demand voters support their bars, restaurants & breweries and don't really care much about funding struggling urban neighborhoods on the East side. 

Local irony: Progressivism often stops at private pocketbooks.

Here's a peek at public radio advocacy and a "creative community" arguing against local baseball & football: 

On Wednesday, the Chiefs and Royals announced separate community benefits agreements (CBA) with Jackson County that the teams valued at nearly $270 million. Royals officials say they are also working on at least three other such agreements — with the Crossroads Community Association, ArtsKC and Kansas City Public Schools.

“As I have said from the very beginning, we are committed to Jackson County, and these historic agreements represent how both teams will help lift up our fellow neighbors – from providing workforce benefits and assistance, diversity benefits, affordable housing, educational programs, and expanded mass transit,” Sherman said in announcing the CBA with the county.
