  1. This idiot who calls himself found doesn't seem to know the difference between Kansas and Missouri.

  2. This idiot who calls himself fritzgabbons doesn't seem to understand the rest of the world don't give a shit that there is a difference between Kansas and Missouri. Not entirely sure that there is a difference, same square different state.

  3. Well, there's good news and bad news.
    A Brit journalist whom I follow on Twitter pointed me to this site, so I could see pics of the wonderful library you have there. Someone needs to be congratulated for fantastic imagination and fun treatment.
    However, I was sad to see that the only two responses that are visible on this post are two people calling each other idiots, over the vexed question of distinguishing Kansas from Missouri. And before you ask, I do know that KC is in Missouri, although I'm a mere Brit. (I've been to your fair city and liked it a lot.)

  4. Michael J MacMahon, that kind of civility is the reason I'm moving to the UK (from Colorado, not Missouri). I'm also here because of Caitlin Moran.

  5. I wouldn't get your hopes up for too much civility Carrie, the UK has gone to the dogs!

  6. I too came just to look at the pics and am not really bothered where the library is located exactly .. Shame such a wonderful, innovative post has such dreadful comments. I'd love to see more buildings like this here in the UK too ... just really fantastic designwork .... well done!

  7. [...] Kansas City Public Library [...]

  8. In regards to the idiot callers and MJM, in respect for civility, I'll respond. The tag for this page has Kansas, when the library is in Missouri. People looking for pages of library, will haveto rely on "Kansas" being in their search description. The differences between the states are huge, from farming to fishing the land is different the people have different needs. Though next to each other Kansas City. KS is a small town. Kansas City, MO is a proper big city with tall buildings and when we say we're going downtown, we mean KC, MO.

  9. MJM Since when has the shape of a boundary unjustified the boundary? Ks n Mo haveva long running order war, and though civil, it's lived out every day, one way or another. Now, you know very well that London, is a city inside Greater London, filled with townships. It borders Essex, Kent, Surrey, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire andDartford, Watford, Waltham Cross and Chigwell Hertferdshire, form part of the urban sprawl, but are outside the formal boundaries. None of these can be considered London. Just like our two cities. It matters, because with out correct definitions, you have chaos and anarchy.
