Re: “Stop the Violence ... Later

This is just another case of the city throwing good money (administration) after bad intents. The pencil pushers do ot know what it takes to cool down a "hot" situation in the areas where mediation is really needed, They would rather fill out forns and lwantch the dead, innocent and participatory, keep rolling on. After all, are they not the holders of the keys to perdition. This reminds me of Kansas City, KS, where the Weed and Seed Program is being usurped by the staff of the Unified Government through its Police Department. The money is gotten on the back of the "hood", but little is done to improve the "hood" through participation of those who live there. The more things change, the more they stay the same

Re: “Stop the Violence ... Later

This is just another situation of diversion of funds to a bunch of desk jockeys, who are probably relatives of flunkies of the city. They have no clue as to what really goes on in the "hood" and possibly really do not care. This reminds of the Weed and Seed Grant in Kansas City, KS, where the money that is received for relieving some of the strife in the urban area of 117, is being frittered away by those who do not live there and really have no little interests there. Those who live in the area are ignored while funds are not used to meet the urgency of problems in 117.

Re: “Widow Shopper

I bought a grouping of WWII USAAF items from John (Jack) Angolia in 1994. He was EXPLICIT in his instructions that if I decide to sell the items that I not involve his name as the items were "given to him by the original owner's widow". I would trust his word about as far as I could throw a cheesecake underwater.

Re: “Stop the Violence ... Later

This is a real joke. We need another commission to explain all this crime. Now the City wants more money for programs. Where in the hell is the Kansas City Police Department?

Re: “Stop the Violence ... Later

This is just another boon doggle for the city.
What the heck is KCPD doing about it?
People are leaving the downtown condos / lofts due to crime.
Have we not spent enough money to solve crime? The excuse is to raise taxes for more Police Officer's so where are they? Sitting behind a desk?
Nothing is being done by the City or the Police department.

Re: “Stop the Violence ... Later

We all pay for homicides anyway. In purely financial costs, you have the cost of treating shooting victims. MAST isn't going to get any money from a 21 year old they transport who's been shot. Truman isn't going to recoup any money for his medical care and an ICU stay. PD is going to have the extra staffing for street officers and detectives to look for witnesses in the case.

This money is already being spent. It just seems like its easier financially to justify spending money on the rehabilitation side than the prevention side.

Re: “Widow Shopper

I am a militaria collector, although I have never done anything like this! I remember corresponding with this gentleman about a year or so ago, and he had numerous uniform for sale at that point in time, and they were certainly not cheap either.

Re: “Viewer Discretion Advised

Wow, I just got my tickets in the mail today! Although I did recently sign up to participate in a review group for movies, and thought this might be related to that, I did think the letter that accompanied the tickets looked suspicious. It's very generic, and upon a close second reading I see that they don't mention the TV shows themselves are new, just the "television material" - presumably all those commercials. Something about it just made me wonder if this was a cold-calling marketing pitch. What's more, the location of this event is extremely inconvenient for me, so I certainly wasn't going to go until I found more information about this group online.

And here I find this article in The Pitch! Thanks!

Re: “Oral Argument

Dr. Thomas is my doctor. Dr. Thomas has performed many successful surgeries on both myself, and my daughter. I would still recommend this oral surgeon to my closest friend or relative. Dr. Thomas is a wonderful DOCTOR. He is a very caring doctor, and a wonderful surgeon. His work ethic is impeccable, and he has the kindest bed-side manner that I have ever witnessed.
If I could speak to him right now, I would say to Dr. Thomas "Keep your chin up, and smile, as your patients, and peers know the truth." Steven Thomas is not only great guy, but also a wonderful Doctor!
