Indy isn't the seat of government ... the seat of government is in Indy. It doesn't matter what Indy wants if the rest of the state is set against it. If you knew as much about it as you pretend to know then you wouldn't have made the statement. You would have known the state placed a ban on light rail. What you're claiming or attempting to claim is silly.

It is interesting how well Kansas City is doing flying under the radar. Tech jobs have grown 157% over a year, ranking 5th in % growth.

Potential growth: Both
Cost of living: Both are cheap, but I guess Indy would be slightly cheaper
Education: Hell if I know, I graduated from college six years ago and don't have any children
things to do: Kansas City
friendliness of its residents: Kansas City just because of the way people drive in Indiana
Architecture: Kansas City easily

Kansas City residents were friendlier to outsiders. In Indy, it felt cold and isolated. It would be interesting to see which city is better for black people.

Indianapolis has the larger black population. It also has a rich African American history.

Yeah, there's not much difference population-wise. There are 263K black people in metro Indy and 254 in metro KC. Both cities-proper have about 29% black population.

I'm no kind of expert on which one is "better", but you'd have a lot of trouble convincing me or anyone with a sensible understanding of the question that Indianapolis has a richer African American history than Kansas City.

Didn't say it had a richer history than KC, however I don't see how KC convincingly trumps Indy at least in that regard.

Me neither. I think they are pretty comparable in that regard and most others.
