Our historical strengths can also be our future - KC is built on transportation, infrastructure, finance, and animal husbandry because we are/were a "cow town" and there's a lot to like about that.

Actualy, all the cows are gone to places like Dodge City and Hays, Kansas. Like it or not, it's our heritage, our legacy. If we try to change that to high tech only, we loose our real identity.

I've been puzzled for years why KC people are so defensive about who we are. I've lived lots of places and this is an awesome city that needs to embrace it's roots.

KC hasn't been a 'cowtown' for years and referring to it as such is anachronistic and encourages backward-looking. New millenium, new outlook. We are so much more than just an Ag Industry town.

Kansas City was once a literal cowtown, but there are no cows in the streets of KC these days. Let's not be ashamed of our past, but let's appreciate and celebrate our amazing progress. If a stranger referred to KC as a "cowtown," I would certainly bring them up to speed. #cowtownnomore

If we try to use the existing regs for Air BNB the model won't work and people will either drop it entirely or try to do things illegally.

It might not be the best solution, but it's better than v1.0. Innovative progress is a good thing.
