The cost of a new car to Mark Funkhouser: zero.
The free publicity for Honda: priceless.
The negative connotation for our two area assembly plants: immeasurable.
Thank you Denver, Cincinnati, Indianapolis and Omaha for supporting our American companies (6/14, Local, “Three Fords, one Chrysler, and a freebie”).

Argh! Kansas City doesn’t have anything better to do than whine about Mark Funkhouser’s usage of this car? Maybe I’m missing something here, but based on a recent article in The Star, it doesn’t even look like the mayor will even own the car.
In other words, he’s not being given a car; he’s driving a car while he is mayor. There are a lot worse things he could be doing.
