I'm envisioning Serra's version of a rusty Schoemehl pot plopped down in the middle of the road. Richard Callow tells me on Twitter that this is a sculpture that will be at or below grade that you will drive over. Interesting. Hard to oppose it as it shouldn't obstruct any views. I'm curious to see...

Rumors are Seychelles. It is only 2x weekly so that would make sense
Confirmed.

Did I see somewhere that 3 floors were added? Now 39 stories? EDIT: found it https://twitter.com/presbyterianstl/status/902197446717173760 It's mentioned on the last page of this thread. Framer was the first to notice a story in the P-D from June was revised. The initial version of the story said i...

@rbb We don't have viglink turned on (and I'm not seeing that link changed) lemme know if you still are seeing that as a redirect. Also of note: we're on phpbb3.2.1 now. And the new theme update has resurrected the "mark all as read" button(s). Thanks for the reply. I'm getting logged out a lot thi...
From AirlineGeeks.com: The Near Death and Resurrection of St. Louis International Airport Airline hubs are generally not the kind of place that change much in terms of service. In the United States, given the last decade of consolidation among airlines, most hub airports will likely stay hubs for th...

So, coupla things... That 'site randomly logs me out while browsing' thing I mentioned upthread seems to be back... I've been kicked out twice in the last two days. Also, I'm not sure if the site does this automatically or not, but it seems that some of the links to outside articles are being conver...
Some news, albeit nothing earth-shattering: http://stlouis.cbslocal.com/2017/08/03/big-plans-for-union-station-aquarium/ In short, schematics are done and PGAV is now drawing up construction plans. The shark tank will be "spectacular". And they say the St. Louis Aquarium will be the most interactive...
It also looks like the local concept restaurant by E33 is back out for bid. They must not have liked the initial bids. The bidders responded to the bid request with questions, which are answered on an addendum published yesterday . It's not back out for bid so much as it's reissued with clarificati...

Where in St. Louis would this go? I don't know. It doesn't say. Pearl Companies is the firm responsible for the ...

My brother and his friend drove to Chicago for a flight to Asia earlier this year (Because of price). Two other friends drove to Chicago for a flight to Europe this year (because of price). I would be curious to know how much they really saved after gas, parking. Also, my companies CEO (lives in Eu...
Hmmm...this is interesting. The Post ran a correction today to an earlier article about One Hundred. The correction states that the tower will be 39 stories, as opposed to the 36 previously reported. Here's the revised story. They've added floors and residences, per this: Proposed 39-story Central ...
Help from the state on it's way: Missouri Highway Patrol troopers will soon be patrolling interstates in St. Louis as part of a 90-day pilot program to free up city police officers to focus on violent crime. Between 20 and 30 troopers will be assigned to the special detail, which will focus on the ...
Though I will say, I need to ask my friend Birgit precisely what a "scrum master" is. I believe that's her current job title, actually. And her description is the only place I'd previously seen it. Sounds like it belongs on a rugby field. (Or would that be a pitch?) A scrum master is a Project Mana...

China Tests a "train" that runs on a virtual track. Could this be a solution here? Maybe a compromise between BRT and street running light rail?

Not bad, if I do say so, (though admittedly cropped and color-enhanced) for a cell phone shot taken through the glass of a car moving across the PSB:

As for making opening up more C gates, that seems to heavily imply some need for it in the not too distant future. One other possibility is that Alaska might need to add a 2nd gate since I looked Google flights they are still having the new San Diego Service at almost the same time as the Portland ...
I think the thing to note is comparing those 90s numbers and today, is what is the traffic in each case once you strip out connecting traffic. Mainly is the local origin and destination traffic higher now than then? If I had to guess its overall not much different, mainly since a lot of people were...
