Star Search: Freight House Goes Vietnamese, er Viennese, KU Ticket Inve$tigation & JoPo

Was there anything much, wildly compelling in yesterday or today’s newspapers? Eh…

Hey, strawberry prices are falling, we learn. Anybody out there tracking that?

Joyce Smith tells us that the City Tavern in the so-called Freight House District – a tepid disappointment from the get-go – will finally close April 17th and reopen as a….

Would you believe, Vinennese restaurant? Believe.

That’s a pretty humongous space for a specialty cuisine, by my measure, but what do I know?

Word on the street two years back was that Rod Anderson may have been thinking of rescuing the City Tavern by moving the Hereford House . Shortly before the fire, that is.

KU Booster Fund Gets More bad News

At what point might a basketball ticketing scandal in KU’s Williams Fund begin pinching the athletic department in the wallet? That indeed is the question.

It all stems from KU’s controversial points system that booted loyal, but less well-heeled KU basketball and football fans from long held seats to make way for the Fat Checkbooks.

Now two of the top dogs overseeing KU’s pay-for-play seating arrangements have been summarily ousted.

The unexplained mystery:

    At least in my copy of the star I believe it is a Viennese restaurant. If you had read the first sentence of the story, “Sausages, schnitzels and strudels will soon replace seafood and oysters..” you might have figured it out. I guess you answered your own question.

    At least Hearne will be quick to print a retraction/correction.

    Apparently, Hearne doesn’t read anything more than the headline – and misreads those. V

    Hey – there’s a schnitzel in my Bok Choi! Hey there’s Bok Choi in my schnitzel!

    And why exactly does Vietnamese cuisine require a smaller restaurant space? Is it because the people are smaller? Nice racism there.

    “Vietnamese” good one Hearne Aprils fools all month…a real comment buster.

    Whats going on!
    Market goes up a half point every day…climbing that wall of worry..In spite of the worst economic conditions in 50 years. I know market is a discounting mechanism but WOW look at the headwinds out there.
    $87 OIL
    Business is hunkered down over uncertainty in Health, Taxes, No Hiring–.
    American Productivity is going thru roof…
    Driving around KC the vacancies are really starting to mount in prime real estate locations.
    Hearne maybe you can get one of the Tobin’s to teach us how to grow a garden.

    How ironic that the Perkins…went after Joe College a local screen printer….meanwhile running a ticket ponzi on the alumni? What a zoo…how many posse’s and entourages..does it take to play in the Top 10? Jayhawks have GREAT tradition and Karma..lets keep it.

    bSHCLOZ…
    don’t worry…the democrats and republicans
    have both scammed us out of our money…they
    realized with bushs term coming to an end they
    had one final chance to rob the american
    treasury blind. And it wasn’t just the republicans…it was the dems too.
    Don’t worry…oil will be $3.50-$4.00 a galoon
    this summer…why..the oil companies want to
    screw the democrats. The democrats rightly
    believe we have to get off foreigh oil and
    we can creaqte millions of jobs with
    clean energy. The cats at the oil companies don’t
    wamt that so they raise gas..america goes into
    the shitter and they get their gas guzzling
    cars still being made.
    And don’t worry about jobs…there are lots of
    jobs out there. People and companies need help.
    IN 5 years there won’t be enough people in the
    job market to fill all the jobs. Millions hav
    e retired…taken early leave…stopped working
    and when the economy roars back there won’t be
    enough people to fill all the jobs opening.
    It’s coming. IN fact there will be huge shortages
    of workers in key industries that will hurt
    our economy.
    And bschloz….oalmost 2 years ago I blew the
    whistle on lew perkins. I said this guy was
    going to cause problems…and look whats happening. When will the alumni of ku wake up
    and see what this guy is doing? I love the
    university of kansas (except when my team plays
    them in football/basketbll) but they are an
    incredible rep for this state and I don’t want
    to see happen to ku what we saw happen at mu.

    Jo Jo is way right. The faster Perkins gets fired the lesser the pain. But there will be pain either way.
