My folks and brother and sister still live there. I visit regularly enough. Nothing fundamental has changed. Olatha is still whitebread. N KC still rolls up the sidewalks at 7pm. Johnson county is still a massive cookie cutter burb. KCK is still whitetrash and black ghetto.

About the only thing I noted was they built a new Plaza further out. So the Johnson county people don't have to see a black person.

Bullshit.

You've got Sprint, some Aviation related work in Olatha, Black and Veech, the government tit suckers building medical database software and the usual assortment of small businesses building apps for local business.

You should visit N.Cal. We've got single zip codes with 10x the tech as the whole KC area.

I grew up in midtown KC. Bullshit on you! Massive piles of bullshit.

Only KC residents think they are diverse. Because they have both Baptists and Methodists in the country club.

And Olatha? Where the tech jobs (such as they are) are. White bread 'burb from hell. Only good thing there was 'The Roundup' nudie bar.

N. KC? OMFG I'm in new Topeka from 'A Boy and His Dog'.

Most ABS brakes systems degrade to regular brakes systems when the ABS fails. Same is true for power brakes.

Brake by wire is different. Some of them degrade to 'pedal goes to floor, brakes do nothing'.

They universally have almost no pedal feel. You won't know you have a warped disk by feeling it.
