KANSAS CITY -- What do you get when you put a bunch of smart people together to talk about smart cities? Hydrographs that illustrate flood mitigation and spell out university letters, streetlights that deliver WiFi, on-demand electric cabs, connected bike lights and more.

Throw in a Kansas City backdrop and you've also got 51 of the smartest blocks in the country and a jazzy night life.

We count on your expert use of sad-writer evocations to brighten our otherwise dullish days. So thanks for that.

Nice work. I knew it couldn't have been Rainford.

Wow -- a show-tune reference in an LR headline. Who gets the credit for this one?
