Re: Lambert St. Louis Int. Airport [airline/hub/operations/info]

Not quite sure what you mean by the "nonstop map." When you clicked what now says nonstop service there used to be a map showing all the places that had nonstop service so you easily could see each destination on a map. Now they just list them out in a list (which they also did before). A map is ju...

Re: MLS2STL

Because the law requires it, and the people want to have a direct say. One of the biggest criticisms of the NFL proposal is that they side-stepped the public vote requirement by stretching the 'adjacent development clause.

Re: New Dogtown Apartment complex.....

I'm all for this project. I do kinda wish it looked a bit less like pretty much every other mixed-use apartment building proposed or built in the last 5-10 years, but the use and form factor is spot-on.

Re: MLS2STL

The stance from Greitens is consistent with his past statements re: public funding. But FWIW, Foundry's open letter from November 23rd, available on http://www.stlsoccerreport.com, revealed that Foundry STL "has a relationship with the Governer-elect" (on page 3, footnote 2).
