Old buildings are the worst! You're so right.

Sometimes they are. Sometimes old buildings are roach infested. I don't live with roaches.

To each their own.

I do love the Mack B. Nelson House at 55th and Ward Parkway, though. I've been wishing I could have that house since the first time I saw it. If possible, though, I'd move it to Johnson County!
I'd have to second that. XD This is coming from someone who's spent a good deal of her life traveling back and forth between KC to NYC. I have nothing against urban areas, in fact I love them. Jackson may have its nice parts, but I still wouldn't say the area as a whole is more "upscale" or wealthier than JoCo. More touristy, maybe, but if cities like Miami, St. Louis, and Cincinnati are any indication, high tourism doesn't accurately portray a city/county's income and poverty levels.

If you can't tell, kcmo hates Kansas and loves Missouri. Plenty of us disagree with him.

Sometimes new buildings are roach infested. So where are you left?

Your perspective is a bit refreshing. I think I've been living in a bit of a bubble and tend to forget how the average American thinks, especially in this part of the country.

Oh, and Europe must be swarming with roaches, probably German ones.

So living with roaches is fine with you? Not to me. I will not live in a place with roaches. Newer buildings have a better chance of not having them. Personal preference. You can move into an old roachy building if you want to; I choose not to.

You brought up roaches. You must have experienced them somewhere to even be worried about it. I've never even thought about it. However, a potential roach problem has to do more with who lives in a place than the age of the building. Saying old buildings have roaches is just stupid. To be honest, an educated argument can be made for the disfavor of old houses or even old condos, but a roach problem is not that.

Now that Mizzou has seceded to the SEC the border wars may actually be over. Time will tell. But the move to the SEC did make Mizzou once again a member of the Confederacy.

The idea that you could hurt my feelings is pretty funny to me. I've been posting on C-D for nearly 5 years -- my skin is pretty thick. I just think your "opinion" is misinformed.

Also, your earlier post entirely contradicts what you are saying. You do have an anti-MO bias, clearly. Why else would you (even jokingly) say you would move a beautiful and old Missouri home to Johnson County?
