^It should be. I'm excited for this matchup. The only thing that would make it better would be if it were the NLCS, for the pennant. I don't want the Cards to play the Cubs in the playoffs. I want the Cubs to lose in Pittsburgh, as I don't mind the Pirates. My heart can barely take the Blues playing...
Wabash - Not sure how I missed those photos you posted on 7/2, but great finds! Just curious (to Wabash or anybody who can answer) - what streets did the Hodiamont line run on before hitting its ROW at the western end? Sadly, I can't recognize some of those streets in the pictures, even the ones tha...
^ A happy medium would be a return to the old format of allowing the two leagues' best record teams play in the World Series. Hell, make it best of 9 again. But I do like the LCS's, though. It's possible we might finally see a Cubs/Cards NLCS for the first time this year (though doubtful, as the win...
Noticed the gas station was up and running yesterday with a cheap, lighted "OPEN" sign and several people getting gas...didn't appear to be anything for sale inside the store, however. :shock:
The owner of the Fazoli's building presented a plan at the neighborhood association meeting to convert it to a Jack In The Box. They said that Chick-Fil-A and a host of other companies turned it down. He apparently only solicited offers from national chains. The neighborhood association declined to...
This is my concern about such a steep increase (IMO, $13/hour is still a big jump). This affects workers who have lifted themselves out of minimum wage-paying jobs, but will be back to earning the lowest possible wage. I think this argument in particular is a bad one. We can't base our society arou...
^Ok, I didn't catch that...thanks for the correction.
No question, if this passes, the City will lose thousands of jobs. Thousands. Do people really not see how easy it would be for employers to simply re-locate a few miles away? Do people really doubt that that would happen? Again, it's simple. If this passes, the City will lose thousands of jobs. So...
Meanwhile, in St. Charles... http://www.stltoday.com/news/local/metro/tension-escalates-in-a-st-charles-subdivision-after-a-new/article_f4803317-4ee7-5b4c-807f-4c9d9472d15b.html An interesting story. One of the "activists" who's in a few of the photos, Umar Lee, posted this video last Octo...
Three of four guns recovered in today's incident were stolen. Irresponsible legal gun buyers from across Missouri are fueling the gun explosion and associated crime. I agree. One of the guns recovered from the Ball-Bey shooting last night was registered in Rolla. I think there needs to be some sort...
I ate at one of their locations in Tennessee. It was pretty good pizza, and I seem to remember they had a decent craft beer menu. I hope they keep local beers on tap.

4/5 afternoon drivetime slots are indistinguishable blues/soul shows. The 5th is 3 hours of Zydeco. This is not a good thing.


3/5...drive time on Wednesdays is "The Big Bang!", which is pop-oldies. But yes, 60% is still too much blues in that time slot.
I doubt the station makes this information public, but I'd be curious as to which shows bring in the most donations. This is anecdotal, but I listen through most of the pledge drives, and I've heard some of the "museum music" DJs meet or almost meet their goals for callers (they don't anno...
"Young, black and dead in St. Louis" A BBC article about the other young, black men and women buried near Michael Brown who also died of violence. http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-33765871 Incredible line in the story: "Within a roughly 30-metre radius of Michael's grave there are at ...

How would one access these establishments from the Brentwood Metrolink station? :shock:


With extreme caution.
While that's nice and all, white people still won't go to the pool. Disagree. Totally disagree. You're saying all white people are racists, and I disagree. Are we living in the same City? Because it's pretty obvious to me that almost everyone in the City and the County segregates themselves by race...
^That is, I would agree. I was thinking more of the 90+ municipalities competing with each other and County/St. Charles County leaders who are hostile to working with the City on anything and everything. But everybody does get together on the appeal of the City's iconography.

Not much regionalism in this region.
...I also think it's funny when all of these firms in the county have pictures of downtown and the arch on their website when they would never even consider locating in the actual city.. again, yes, we're all "st. louis" obviously... I've been as far out as Warrenton and seen the Arch/sky...
For many young families the weekdays are completely consumed by school, work, soccer practice, getting dinner on the table and doing it all over again. They can head into the center city to get their fill for true urbanism, culture, and entertainment on the weekends and then return to the world of ...
^No ideas on which will happen first, but I like the order you listed them: start in the core and then work west.
^The Railway Exchange Building Former home to downtown Macy's, FKA Famous Barr, FKA (can't remember). For a short while (in 1914) the largest office building in the world by square footage. Macy's closed last year, sadly. The building is currently (on some floors, not sure how many) home to T-REX, a...
