Good news = Shriners hold their annual convention in St. Louis, bringing over 20,000 members and ther $$ to our region.

Bad news = Thieves steal mini-motorcycles from Shriners

*sigh*

Today I witnessed an astonishing thing. The passenger of a new car with a shiny new “Jesus” sticker on the rear window, tossing out not one, not two, but 6 empty White Castles boxes onto Vandeventer Ave. Somehow I just can’t see littering fitting into the WWJD category…

Headline reads “Pedestrian killed in downtown hit-and-run.” Images of a dangerous city are yet again brought to light by the Post. A city full of “gun battles” and marauding hit and run drivers. But wait! Read on! From the Post article:

“The man, who has not been identified, was crossing the westbound lanes of Interstate 70 at Memorial Drive about 3:30 a.m. when he was struck, police said.”

Um… crossing an interstate at 3:30am? Doesn’t quite live up to the sensational title does it? Could have easily read, “Pedestrian hit while crossing interstate,” or even “Pedestrian hit crossing interstate downtown.” But, alas, no. Again the Post decides to lead with a headline that paints the city and Downtown in the worst light possible.  Nice.
