Re: “Amit Raizada, local payday profiteer, takes his talents to South Beach and gets sued

"A good rule of thumb, when encountering substantial wealth in Kansas City, is to consider the possibility that it flows from the tap of online payday lending"

I still can't help but think that payday lenders only represent a extremely small portion of the substantially wealthy in KC...but whatever.

Re: “Johnson County's Ed Peterson wants to unseat Ed Eilert

I'm shocked that the Pitch didn't use this headline for the article.....Johnson County's Ed Peterson lusts for Ed Eilert's seat! It would have had thousands of more reads and tweets from the core Pitch "target" reader. Sometimes they just don't know the difference from irreverent and irrelevant.....but then again that's why they can't get hired by the Star (sic).

Re: “Streetside: Over a Barrel in Martini Corner

You can call it whatever you want, it's still just a bunch of fake ass dweeb wanna be urbanites who were in suburbia. They don't have the cojones to go further east and try to gentrify the hood - but want to act like they hate their parents who live in JoCo. Most of them can't handle a real martini anyway!

Re: “Developers lay out their visions for the Kansas City of tomorrow

Unfortunately KCK 's future is on the chopping block. The new mega airport of 2020 is going to be located there and downtown KCK and surrounding neighborhoods will be razed with little or no notification to its residents and business owners. Thats how we roll in the future!!

Re: “Developers lay out their visions for the Kansas City of tomorrow

Two questions: It is obvious downtown KCMO will continue to become more residential. Generally speaking, do downtown dwellers also work downtown, or work hither and thither across KC, MO and KC, KS?

Also: Where in Columbus Park will those family homes be located? Last I checked, it was pretty tight over there.

Re: “Developers lay out their visions for the Kansas City of tomorrow

I'm disappointed that there wasn't any mention of KCK in the article. What's up with that? We have a lot happening just 1/4 mile over the water from downtown and yet I have to hear about the hinterlands of Overland Park. Are you not interested in places with poor people, or maybe it's blacks and hispanics that you'd like to ignore….

Re: “Developers lay out their visions for the Kansas City of tomorrow

For this Vision of the future to actually happen, 1st, were gonna have to have real City Leaders who don't play political correctness games, and Mayor Sly James isn't it !!!

2nd, going to have to get rid of the Violent degenerate Gang Banging Rats that are attempting to take over the city and destroy it with their Drugs, Drive by shootings, Car chases etc.

3rd we'll need a real Mayor (not Sly James), and a real Police Chief, and a Tough Proscuting attorney at the Jackson County Court house and Jean Peters and her staff, aren't cutting it, with their many plea deals they cut with the Degenerate criminals !

Till any of this happens, the above mentioned article is just a PIPE DREAM and nothing else !!!

Re: “Developers lay out their visions for the Kansas City of tomorrow

Start with our embarrassing airport and work your way back south. No more wasted money on 18th and Vine. Make the city inviting somehow. Where have we gone wrong and cities like Austin, Minneapolis, Denver draw creative and eclectic thinking. Change our attitude from a stockyard cowtown to a true metropolitan and open city. How can they do it and we fail miserably. Ugh. One giant suburban bore.

River walk.. some sort of river development. Bars and restaurants with patios overlooking the (admittedly ugly and smelly) river.

Re: “Streetside: Over a Barrel in Martini Corner

I think The Pitch is in a great position to affect a changing the name of Martini Corner Union Hill.

Re: “Streetside: Over a Barrel in Martini Corner

I'm encouraged by Chris Ridler's comments on the district. With all of the new construction in Union Hill and the renovations along Armour, it strikes me that it's high time for the area to drop the Martini Corner moniker, simply becoming Union Hill, and in the process become a more neighborhood oriented district of restaurants, bars, and services. Glad to see the changeover.

I want those juicy tax cuts and property tax deals downtown boosters try to keep secret from the rest of the city.
