I have registered my concern and dissatisfaction with Clark Hunt’s staff several times, with no answers or explanation of the Chiefs’ discriminatory transportation policy.
I have attended Chiefs games since moving to the Kansas City area in 1995. Compliments to you and your team for the outstanding fan experience once inside Arrowhead.
I have always taken a car service. This year the Chiefs decided which transportation company I would use. This has made my experience very disappointing to the point I will not renew my season tickets.
I use a minority owned licensed livery service, but they are restricted from dropping riders off close to Arrowhead Stadium, due to the Chiefs’ exclusive arrangement with zTrip.
As you can see, there are plenty of club level seats available. I can buy these below market price for the games I want to see and will not be obligated to pay for overpriced preseason tickets.
I am very disappointed in the restraint of trade and the dictation of how a fan will come to the game by the Chiefs, who historically have been sensitive to the fan experience.
Teach our kids
After a very contentious presidential election, repercussions are being felt in many different areas. One of the most troubling is the increased bullying and derogatory language in schools. Children are showing more aggression and telling immigrants they should go back home, apparently feeling that if someone who uses racist language can become president, it must be acceptable.
School teachers and administrators must insist that it is not acceptable and provide more positive role models for students. Parents must also talk to their children about respect for all people, no matter what their skin color, nationality or attire.
Young people are primarily reflecting the attitudes of their parents and other adults. We cannot allow this kind of divisiveness and attitudes of white superiority to take hold in our neighborhoods and cities. It will destroy the basic principles of justice and equality on which our country was founded.
If we do not eradicate all sexism, racism, and xenophobia from our society, we will no longer be “the land of the free and the home of the brave.”
When I read the story, “A woman says she was raped. The injustice she felt afterward only added to her pain.” (12-12, 1a), I couldn’t even speak for a while. I couldn’t write, or do much of anything.
So many women live their lives not having their stories told and never seeing justice done. There is a great need for change in America when it comes to sexual assault.
Daisy Tackett’s strength and determination is more than admirable. She is just one story among many, but she is doing something amazing in sharing her story — something not everyone who has undergone this ordeal feels safe enough to do.
I’ve been thinking about the story, “Missouri GOP raises money selling meetings with lawmakers” (12-13, 4A). So, we learn who they are, and now we’re just haggling over the price. It seems that we should let the state get a cut in this nefarious transaction.
It might work something like this: The legislature could offer bills that benefit any special interest group in the state. Then open bids could be taken on the legislation in order to ascertain its street value. The proceeds from the sale of the legislation would then go into the state coffers in order to support constituents who aren’t privileged enough to have skin in the game.
Its a win-win. The state gets true value for any passed legislation, and the GOP doesn’t get hauled into court for lascivious behavior.
Where are checks and balances that limit power in a democracy? Can anyone stop Trump from simply doing what he wants?
He will not submit his tax report like other presidents have done. He will not divulge his business dealings around the world.
He discounts the CIA, pretending to have more wisdom about foreign governments.
Is there no one in Congress to implement checks on a man who is usurping power?
