Kansas City - nice town that has made a lot of efforts at renovating its central districts, but to no avail, since the fundamental problem (having scads of Section 8 housing full of, ah, inner city types) has never been resolved.

Best bet - do your shopping in Lee’s Summit or Overland Park.

Too bad about the Plaza. Three generations of our family considered the Plaza lights at Christmas a must do when we all lived there. Visited there recently and was shocked and saddened to see a Pizza Inn on Petticoat Lane where Harzfeld’s once stood.

All that rap and hip-hop have produced is a sub-culture that clashes with the rest of society at large.

Society at large wants to get on with its business, live peaceably as possible and enjoy trans-cultural aesthetics. Society at large knows that in order to “live”, certain rules must be observed, rules that are mocked and disdained by this sub-culture.

More to the point... in general, youth tend to treat mom and dad’s morays as old fashioned and seek to overrule it with their own sense of morality. In the case of the flash mob crap in KC, as well as in other places, there is a racial element that follows the same sort of pattern of youth throwing off the old-school... it is that black youth wants to throw off what they see as “whitey’s societal norms” and replace it with their own brand of social morays... they totally disrespect what they perceive as “white society”, even though many different races and cultures make up that society.

The world of rap and hip-hop has taught them to wear their pants low and fumble their genitals as a way of slapping at what they resent and reject. They have been instructed that their penalty for bad behavior will be light or nil because of the abuses their ancestors have endured. So long as the music industry is making millions from this cultural divide, don’t expect anything to change... oh, and you can expect the Country Club Plaza to become just another Bannister Mall.
