True....a year ago my vote would have been “no.”

Run the number of people who currently fly into and out of KCI through it every year and it's not a fun airport now.

(But truly, is there any airport to which that word applies?)

I'm heartened to hear that the folks Back Home finally figured it out.

I really look a long, unbiased look at the whole “convenience” thing, and it came down to restrooms. Inside security, they are cramped, smelly and for us ladies, always a line. Outside of security, inevitably the one I want to go to is “closed for cleaning.” I assume the new airport will feature restrooms where half can be closed off for cleaning while the other half remains open.

Not sure what the plan is for long term parking, but I’d love to see a parking garage close to the terminal (at $7 or $8 a day) and put the blue bus to rest.

My “yes” vote was cancelled out by Mr. Dokie’s “no”

I would bet they keep that garage for short term parking, but it will be available for daily parking for a higher fee. Basically like the garages are now.

I heard they plan to keep both garages at terminal B and C. One would be for employee parking. I bet they rethink that and keep busing employees in from a remote lot and keep those garages available to the public. They should keep at least one open to the public anyway. They will get more revenue doing that then what they would save by not busing employees.

Then KCI would be similar to BWI. They have a huge garage across from the terminal that is for short term parking or you can park daily but it's like $22 a day. Then they have another very large garage that is a short bus ride away, but it's all covered parking for $12 a day and then they have the long term parking which is like KCI's long term and it's $8 a day.

It's nice having three options for parking at BWI depending on your needs. KCI should do something similar.

Oh, and:

So much for CrownVic95's presumption that he knows what "Kansas City" thinks and has the "good sense" to reject.

Probably won't see as much as an "I stand corrected" from him.

I'm sure you're right. When the public votes his way, they're independent-minded and sensible. When they vote the other way, they were obviously hoodwinked by manipulative marketing.

In all fairness, I dont know anyone who wasn’t shocked by that outcome. If not the passage, then certainly the overwhelming landslide.

Indeed, it makes no sense given the debate's history.

I've withheld further comment until I begin to understand what really happened here.
