^according to wikipedia, 100.3 was "The Sound" from 12/26/09 to 12/26/10. I still wish they had just stuck with that and never gone to GenX.
Re Doug: Of all people, I would've thought that you'd agree that white people still hold a disproportionate amount of power in this country. If not, then disregard the second question I posed. Thank you for a real response though. Re ricke002 and urban_dilettante: I am not trying to argue that one r...
I said it wasn't "reverse racism," Right, it's just plain racism. I said what I meant: People should be judged as individuals, but generalizations based on race can be made (read through the article I posted earlier and try to argue differently). I don't mean to say that one race is infer...
Just throwin out my own ideas here. Guns: 18 to buy, 21 to carry. A license is needed to do both, and granted only after a criminal background check, a professional evaluation of a person's mental stability, and completion of a gun safety course/test. A licensed is revoked for ANY felony, and may be...
I really resent the idea of a curfew. I was raised to treat my fellow man with respect, to use violence as an absolutely last resort, and to set high goals and standards. Throughout high school, my friends and I would go to the loop "en masse," and we never had the slightest thought of com...
Concourse C is set to reopen April 2nd. Concourses B and D are closing the night before. More info on flystl.com.
And beyond that, what are the *affordable* HS choices? you still have SLUH ... Affordability is another story. SLUH has a work grant program that waives tuition (or at least cuts it severely). Several good friends were in it, and they seemed to think it was a pretty good deal. As for Catholic-ness,...
I'm still holding out hope that this will work out one way or another. We're in too damn good a location, and we're a hell of a lot bigger than people seem to think. Keep the positive energy people. We've got a China Eastern 777 landing at Lambert in six and a half hours. THAT is cool. I wish I were...
worst case scenario: Target moves in, a few locals close up shop due to competition, more people move downtown thanks to the convenience of the big box mart, and the local shops reopen thanks to the increased population.

I'm all for it.
I'm extremely confident that the Lambert Board will approve. They've been pushing this the whole time, haven't they? I HOPE that the tax credits get approved. If they don't, Mr. Crowell needs to be fired. A decade after the death of TWA, we've been graciously gifted with a second chance at being a m...

We've got the first flight scheduled for September 23rd!
Been to the Loop several times this summer, haven't really noticed a problem. I also really like the idea of a teen center that came up at the U-City Youth forum. A safe place for kids to go to just to chill, hang out, get some sodas, and be treated like adults. Set up some couches and video games i...
hold on, you want to go shirtless to get away from the whole Missourah conservative image? I thought the stereotypical missourah hoosier was the one running around without a shirt on...
^best idea i've heard in a long time. if it were a facebook post, i'd like it.
Southwest's website now lists two STL-MKE round trips per day starting on September 7th. They'll be flown on 737s, a HUGE improvement over the regional jets that currently fly the route with Airtran.

Also just want to point out that I totally called this a few months ago XD
Awesome! Glad to see the old McDonnell Douglas HQ still has a prominent role in even the civil aviation aspect of the company. I think this might actually have been the plane I saw the other week too. This also means that the only types of 747 that haven't landed at Lambert (that I know of) are the ...
I don't know, it sure seemed like a ball to me.
It definitely wasn't a dreamlifter. It was the classic 747 shape for sure. I've got two low quality pics on my phone right now, I'll try to get them uploaded. Update: pics! http://i595.photobucket.com/albums/tt35/someperson933/747%20over%20StL/747overStl.jpg http://i595.photobucket.com/albums/tt35/s...
a.net is the greatest, isn't it? so far i've been too cheap to pay the $25 registration fee, but my interest in this (plus the desire to defend Lambert from all the naysayers on there) might just put me over the edge.
I was outside working on the lawn when I heard a plane overhead. I was shocked to look up and see that there were two engines per wing and a hump in the front. It didn't seem to have much (if any) sort of livery on it, but it wasn't all shiny like AA's planes either. I thought it might be for the Ph...
The thing about the ATL hub is that Southwest is going to lose a lot of the business travelers to Delta when they take out Airtran's business class. I think this is going to seriously diminish the size of O/D traffic there. How is this good for us? Southwest is still going to need to move connecting...
Just go to Fitz's and grab a burger!
What's the point in just demolishing C? The only reason you want D to be demolished is to have a rental car facility, but getting rid of C won't do anything for that. Fix it up? Of course. Modernize it in the process? Even better! But demolishing it completely just seems like a waste to me. It'd pro...
no one under 18 after 6 sounds a lot better to me. as wabash pointed out, there are TONS of 18-20 year old college kids who would love to patronize a place like this. I know it'd certainly pull my friends and I (south and west county kids) to downtown, if only to get away from the [email protected]$$ high schoo...
