Will the curfew work? Yeah, right. Will KC’s cops enjoy enforcing it? Hell no. Will the city’s kids change their behavior? Not likely.

Consider this: the publisher of this newspaper caught hell a month or so ago for having the audacity to cover the economic damage that flood waters from the bloated Missouri River inflicted upon downtown Parkville’s business community. Some folks preferred to smile and pretend the water wasn’t there, lest any potential visitors with money in their wallets steer clear, thinking that Parkville had turned into Atlantis.
