Well, that's it, folks.
We've all been sold down the river.
Regarding our beloved, well-designed, convenient Kansas City International Airport with its 3 terminals that is so easy to access, it's apparently over the masses' collective heads and that, combined with the expense for the airlines for security, means they're going to tear the whole thing down, throw it away like so much 8-1/2" x 11" paper and build a brand new, bright, shiny terminal nearby.
Forget the monumental waste of bulldozing and throwing away at least 3 large buildings which will then go into a dump--a "landfill"--we don't have any say on this.
The Kansas City Airport Authority has made up its mind, the business community agrees and now, even Barb Shelley, columnist for the Star sides with them.
We're getting a new airport, however much it was decided without our input.
Your opinion means nothing.
Only in America do we throw away whole buildings.
If they simply don't entertain us enough (see Ms. Shelley's column in The Star), they must be bulldozed and replaced. The problem is not us--it's the building.
We are the only people I know on the planet who does this, too.
Then we wonder why we don't have any history or enough great architecture but we do things like this.
So to Barb Shelley I say you and I usually agree on things civic, social and political but on this we don't agree. You're wrong.
But you win.
