I’m not gonna spell it out for you guys right here, right now, but…
Trust me on this, the alleged reason behind the Power & Light District’s bailing on the KC Strip trolly line, effectively hanging it out to dry and leading directly to its death, is one nasty, embarrassing, sordid tale.
It’s a very ugly cat that wants to claw its way out of the news bag, and when and if it does, it will be yet another very embarrassing black eye for Kansas City’s taxpayer subsidized entertainment district downtown.
And that’s what in part makes it all so galling.
Look, right now I’m basically sworn to secrecy.
But this story is too huge to die an ignominious death.
Not with Power & Light mouthpiece Nick Benjamin shedding ridiculously hypocritical crocodile tears while dishing out insincere quotes to the Kansas City Star about the Strip’s demise like, “We were saddened and disappointed to hear that they are shutting down.”
Ladies and gentlemen, this story is too big to be hushed up. Too wrong not to be righted.
Please stay tuned.
