Nebraska Furniture Mart is ‘the single biggest tourist attraction’ in Kansas

Nebraska Furniture Mart vice president Bob Batt came to Kansas to personally dispute claims made by Wyandotte County’s Unified Government that the big box electronics dealer owes millions of dollars in unpaid property taxes.

Then at the Tuesday news conference, Batt reportedly reminded us how important Nebraska Furniture Mart is to Kansas:

“We’re not the bad guys here. We’re the golden apple of Wyandotte County. We’re the single biggest tourist attraction in the state of Kansas.”

This is sad and true. So take that, Prairie Dog Town. Suck it, Garden of Eden. Eat it, World’s Largest Ball of Twine.  Uh, Kansas is really hurting for tourist traps.
