A trio of #kcmuckreads

  • The Pitch takes a hard look at the streetcar issue – votes are due today – and wonders if it’s actually going to help downtown development. After all, it notes, there’s no empirical evidence that attracting a “creative class” with shiny objects actually works. But, “This hasn’t stopped cities across the country from trumpeting their arts scenes and building cool-looking things like streetcars in order to court these phantom creatives.” (Pitch)
  • The Journal-World takes a look at the Kansas Boy Scout perversion cases, and tells how one Scout volunteer was able to abuse boys over and over for decades. (LJW)
  • The Star took a year to investigate how the methods used by beef producers expose Americans to E. coli, and how Big Beef’s influence is rewriting U.S. dietary guidelines. (Star)
