Re: “Kansas City teachers get $14 million performance grant, but union will try to spoil the fun

How the heck to you "norm" the results from class to class, school to school? Answer that and then discuss how to distribute the money? Teacher's classes are luck of the draw. One year you may have several special needs or english as a second language students, and the next have a group of low income students struggling to find dinner at night. Compare those classes to a different school in a more affluent area, and bingo you suddenly have "underperforming" teachers. It is the school district's JOB to weed out ineffective teachers before they get tenure. Tenure should never be given lightly by a school district, but it is a given that most if not all new teachers will be tenured after 5 years. Food for thought...

Re: “St. Louis' view of KC dining stuck on the Plaza

can't wait for the profit and loss district to go belly up. The winner in the bankruptcy auction can bring in all LOCAL food and bar talent. Then we will have an ENTERTAINMENT district!!! Down with the crappy chains!! Down with crappy corporate gruel!!! Diversity is a strength.

Re: “Homophobic Westboro Baptist Church gets date with U.S. Supreme Court (poll)

The phelps have a right to picket and speak their idiocy.

Compassionate, kind people have a right to assemble en mass and loudly sing this John Lennon song every time they choose to do so....

Someone set up a twitter account and call out the troops every time the westboro idiots stick their noses out the door please!! It would be great for thousands of people show up as a flash mob for a worthy purpose.

Imagine
John Lennon


Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today...

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religon too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace...

Imagine no possesions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
In a brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...

You may say i'm a dreamer
But i'm not the only one
I hope some day you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Re: “Kansas City finally makes top 10 that doesn't rank obesity, STDs, or likelihood of death by murder

9 billion dollar downtown development project? WTF? I think the number is a bit dated...

"Mediocre nightlife" is what you make of it. I never have a problem finding fun and as much trouble as I want in this town. If we could please spend some cash on mass transit I could quit worring about getting home in one piece and really have a good time!

Re: “Kansas City jaywalking sting curbed over race issues

let's see.... red light camera's and jaywalking tickets. Next come the spitting on the sidewalk and throwing gum from the car window brigade. If the Police force has so much spare time, perhaps we should cut a few dollars from the budget and get rid of some middle management police force fat?

Re: “Big 12 commish Dan Beebe says TV deal not done yet ... and still waiting for Texas Tech to commit

Like playing with the Suprano's, but...20 million more doesn't get you squat once you line up on the field.

Tiggers and Pinkel should be licking their whiskers to get a straight shot at winning the conference each year.
