Re: “Drunken Pushing: It seems like you don't have to actually be driving to get a DUI

"Pushing motorcycle" riiigggghhhtt, My first Bull Sh*t flag was raised after it stated you went in and had another drink after wrecking your motorcycle into a fence, when you were previously concerned you drank too much??? Someone "messed" with the gears/throttle? If two people came out to "push" the bike why was it started?? that makes NO sense, and if your were gonna "push" it wouldn't you have had to know what gear it was in allready? I'm sure the fence owner was good with the $5 spot you gave him. In the article it seems the Police spontaniously appeared!! Who called them??? Hmmmm maybe the property owner of the fence who just got done talking to a drunk guy who drove a motorcycle through his fence...maybe! It does suck you lost your job...and I wouldn't wish that on anyone...BUT..take responsebility for your actions:(Its embarassing running your motorcycle into a fence but this article is more embarassing.

Re: “Drunken Pushing: It seems like you don't have to actually be driving to get a DUI

shockingly, it appeared that the pitch failed to perform more than five minutes of research into this case. the opinion reveals that the facts of this case are far from clear - though it's clear that the defendant's story is not entirely accurate. there were facts in the record evincing that he actually did ride the motorcycle, but even if not under the law he was "operating" the vehicle.

does it suck that he lost his job? absolutely, but reflexively assumig the defense's story is 100% accurate is pretty absurd. i guess that's what one can expect from a hallowed journalistic institution such as the pitch.

Re: “Water Hogs

Ricke from KCMO, we received the figures from the Kansas City Water Department. We were skeptical at first as well so we had them double-check to make sure it was accurate, and they assured us that it is.

Re: “Water Hogs

I think the quoted statistics are way off. A family using an average of 6,200 gallons a month, maybe, but 6,200 gallons a year -- no way!

Re: “Water Hogs

I just have a question. Why, when we know that water is a very important resource that should not be squandered do we not put limits on the amount that can be used by private individuals as well as businesses. When businesses go over their alloted water rights they have to pay a premium, or in some cases face a shut down (I am speaking of very high water usage company's). Set a limit for private individuals and make them live with it. We do not need the highly manicured lawns. Yes, they are pretty, but they are not a necessity.

Re: “Loch Lloyd’s gate offers protection from the poor, suffering masses

Yes...it always seems that just because you make a lot of money and live in a nice gated community that automatically makes you evil in the eyes of those less fortunate and liberal pricks like the folks here at the Pitch. While I'm not anywhere near those folks, I bust my ass to make a good living for myself and my family. I live in a $230,000 house in Johnson County. Now automatically that makes me a Bimmer driving yuppie to these people. I'm a blue collar worker who spends 4 nights a week on an ambulance picking ujp drunks from street corners in every park of the city, responding to or hearing dispatched multiple shootings and assaults a day. I live in Johnson County and those folks live in Lock Lloyd to get away from that, because they can afford to and work hard to be able to. For those of you who mock these people, I would be interested to see what would happen if you had that kind of money given to you. Would you stay in your ramshackle abode in midtown? Or would you move into a nice safe big house somewhere else? I'll be I know the answer...

Re: “Bare Biker Gets Busted

Well,

What a load of rubbish.

A couple of weeks ago there were 2000 naked cyclists riding through the middle of London. They had a cycle police escort and everybody, including the police and the bystanders, had a really great time. Kansas Police should lighten up. Just what is wrong with the body God made. We are ALL naked under our clothes. Don't knock it until you've tried it yourself. Paul

Re: “Loch Lloyd’s gate offers protection from the poor, suffering masses

All I can say is WOW!

It is sad how jealous you seem of people who work hard to earn money. Yes, there are always a few bad eggs in any group that you make no shame in pointing out. BUT you never look at the positive these people do. For example, how many charitable golf tournaments has that neighborhood hosted? And how many people that live there own or found companies that employ a lot of people in the Kansas City area? I want to ask you what good have you done to help your city out? It seems that you are a narcissist that would rather complain about other people�s success rather than help out the people of your city.

" . . . made the comment when she got wet one time"
That's nastier than the comment she actually made.

Re: “Pitch Libs

wow, blatantly inappropriate talk for the office; volunteer or not the email address implies that she is an employee or at least affiliates her with the city- wonder how much the City's going to have to ante up for Funk's latest error in judgement.
