*That's two fewer than the Census Bureau includes in the MSA.

The caveat on the "one region" part from where I sit mainly has to do with the governor who's tossed this out as even his own party bails on him.
What we need is a catchy nickname for that region. The Louisville area, for instance, has "Kentuckiana".

KANSSOURI?

MOKAN? (I think this one is actually used in some places)

This entire narrative is disgusting. Take the acitons of some lone dispicable individual and use them to attack someone else?

Wasn't many years ago when a neo-nazi from MO killed 2 people at the jewish center in OP.

Reasonable people do not try to malign others with their actions.

What the heck?

Doesn't the name Kansas City or "KC" for short already do that?

Sure, in the same sense you can say "Chicagoland" or "Greater Cincinnati" or what have you. I just thought "Kentuckiana" was a unique moniker because it refers to a bi-state region, rather than just a metro area. Perhaps a name like that helps Louisville to feel like the beating heart of a region, for residents of both states.

Why doesn't the airport move Delta out of Terminal B into C and move United into Term B and open up more gates for Southwest in Terminal B.
