WOW. This is what a Mayor does?

THIS is what the MAYOR of St. Louis does. Straight from his blog. I can't make this stuff up. Click on the headline and see the actual post.

St. Louis’ Best Known
Printer-Friendly Version Forward to a Friend

A local television station’s recent broadcast description of Russ Carnahan as “one of St. Louis’ best known Congressmen” caught my ear – and suggests a few other possible designations: the Cardinals as “one of St. Louis’ best known pro sports teams,” the Arch as “one of St. Louis’ best known catenaries,” and toasted ravioli as “one of St. Louis’ best known appetizers.”

That's the best he's got? Maybe Hizonner could take a few minutes working on the high crime rate, lack of downtown development, disappearing convention business, plague of low birth weight babies, crumbling infrastructure, and don't get me started on transit.

I'm going home to the suburbs now. Its no wonder so many people in our area live OUTSIDE the city limits.
