    I live in the Bannister Mall area.  Currently awaiting redevelopment into a soccer stadium & practice fields, retail, office space, etc.

    The KC metro area, on both sides of the state line, are noticeably segregated; for me, it's hard to tell how much of this is based on race, rather than based on income.

      I heard that about the soccer complex when I was there in the middle of October. I sure hope they pull it off. I almost want to weep when I see those buildings just sitting there getting seedier and seedier.

      There are few things sadder looking than empty big boxes in an area that was once vibrant.
