Re: “Bishop Robert Finn, Catholic Diocese ordered to pay $1.1 million for not reporting child sexual abuse

I wonder how many school districts within the kc area have been ordered to pay these kind of penalties. Catholics prepare yourselves for the coming persecutions to bring down Christ Church this is just the beginning of what is to come.

Re: “Ten great burgers under $10, no Winstead's and no Town Topic

I do not have any idea how westport flea market's burgers keep winning or getting called "best burger". They're incredibly bland and greasy, and every time I've been there the condiment bar is in disarray and is not at all sanitary. Anybody with food allergies better never try to eat there, because of how poorly kept the condiment bar is, which I'm surprised passes health code because allergens are supposed to be more carefully controlled. Having worked in restaurants, the place makes me cringe. Service is terrible, burgers are sub-par. Just... no...

Re: “Streetcar: An honest debate gets drowned out by annoying peripheral issues

The May 22nd 2014 Kansas City City Council meeting:

Councilman Ed Ford:"My concern is if this doesn't pass, then we're risking our PIAC dollars. And I'm just not willing to do that at this time. I'd rather wait six months and see how the people vote. I'm no longer willing to put the cart before the horse."

Councilman Russ Johnson: "If anybody out there thinks that, if this gets voted down in August, it's gonna go away, I know 50 people that are gonna force you to move forward or they will move it forward for you. So let's not kid ourselves. The Streetcar's going to be expanded whether we like it or not. Because I know 50 people that will figure out how to draw a (voting) boundary to get it passed."

Re: “Sam Brownback's economic policies stimulate Kansas economy by negative $338 million in one year

The negative $338 million is compared to estimates that were reduced to factor in the income tax reductions. Compared to actual revenue raised last year (through May) Kansas is negative $685, or -12.2%.

Re: “Streetcar: An honest debate gets drowned out by annoying peripheral issues

Johnson and the mayor are the best allies the opposition to the folly trolly could hope for. I encourage them to increase their public appearances and to freely state their closely held personal opinions.

You want to know another place you can get a good burger? Bilski's on Merriam Drive in Shawnee. It's a softball bar (not really ... it's a neighborhood sports bar that just happens to have a lot of softballs on the walls ... but who doesn't like a softball bar?!).

Jeff, I think if you are going to call people "idiots" you should see to your spelling and grammar. Just sayin'.

Re: “Bishop Robert Finn, Catholic Diocese ordered to pay $1.1 million for not reporting child sexual abuse

Finn defenders on this comment board are completely misstating the facts and really need to stop embarrassing themselves.

Finn effectively has admitted that he failed to take the appropriate action in 2010 when Ratigan was sent for psychiatric evaluation rather than reported to the authorities after the photographs were found on Ratigan's computer. Finn further admitted that he failed to read letters sent to him from the principal of St. Patrick's, which set forth Ratigan's behavior in fine detail. Finally, the Graves investigation found that "that Diocesan leaders failed to follow their own policies and procedures for responding to reports." Don't pretend that Finn was just following advice of others and did all that he could.

These were not just "creepy pictures." There were photographs of the naked genitals of little girls. A child certainly was molested. Photographing naked children is child molestation. That's why Sean Ratigan is serving 50 years in prison.

Kitty's Cafe on 31st Street is a glaring omission to this list.

Re: “Ten great burgers under $10, no Winstead's and no Town Topic

Pigwich has a damn fine double cheeseburger.

Hi-Boy is THE quintessential drive-in burger. And the onion rings.....

Westport Flea Market has a good burger, but I wouldn't call it the best one in town.

My favorite burger is the bison burger from McCoy's/The Foundry. Mmmmm....
