Re: “Talking shop, bread and social practice with community artist Sean Starowitz

"But whether his practice is considered art, by people who spend a lot of time determining that sort of thing, seems not to interest him much."

The people determining the artists' validity have already done so if he's a Charlotte Street Fellow.

Thank you Natalie for a positive story about things going on in KC and saving us from yet another negatively toned 'this is why kc sucks' article from Vockrodt or Hudnall.

How on earth could the Catholic Church let this happen?

Re: “A closer look at the Feds' crackdown on two KC-based predatory lenders

It is simply amazing to me that the State Legislatures know about these sort of predatory lending schemes yet do nothing to rein in these abusive practices. I like the idea of the US Post Office providing banking services to poor people, but in the political climate we have now, where people like Darryl Issa are doing their best to destroy the Post Office and privatize it, it will not happen.

I am glad that the FTC has stepped in here. Perhaps the threat of Federal civil suits and asset seizures will clean this cesspool up a bit.

Re: “While Stand Up KC pushes for higher wages, fast-food companies still have it their way

Here's a possible unintended consequence of $15/hr - once you raise the minimum wage, you're going to find that the applicant pool is better educated and more qualified. My guess is that many of these people campaigning for higher wages might find themselves having to competing for and losing out on jobs that are suddenly more attractive to those more qualified.
