Just try to get on a plane with a name misspelled on the boarding pass...... just for kicks, you might try it. Won't get you anywhere. That is why those two words were capitalized.

Well, that was just an example of the fact that it's all outdated. The building has outlived it's lifespan, was really the point I was making. Any "improvements" are just stuck on with duct tape and staple guns (or so it seems).

It's going to be interesting when the pot "cultivation centers" get up and running. We'll be arresting people for doing something themselves that when licensed by the state is legal. Kinda like arresting bars for little back-room poker tournaments while state-sanctioned casinos rake in millions. I can't distill my own vodka for my own use in Illinois without paying the state an $1800…

Proposal would divert funds to schools, limit data storage

If State Sen. Will Kraus gets his way, it could make it hard for Kansas City's camera system to continue. The city has already put enforcement of its red-light cameras on hold pending the results of a court challenge.

Drivers said they hope someone hits the brakes on the cameras for good.

"I think everybody, the first time they get one, feels a little bit violated," said driver Kathleen Jaros. "Like they have been tracked by Big Brother."

The cameras, which keep an electronic eye on some of Kansas City's most dangerous intersections, has some people seeing red.

Jaros said both times she was ticketed, she thought the lights were yellow.

"I think it's a money-making scheme, predominantly," she said. "I don't have a sense it makes the streets any safer."

Kraus has filed two bills for lawmakers in Jefferson City to consider. One would send any fines collected to local school districts and not city governments. He said automated traffic enforcement systems are an "untruthful revenue source."

His second bill allows cities to hold the data that the cameras collect for 30 days.
