A city's music style is a criteria like it or hate it. NYC's KTU likes to play more freestyle dance classics as Chicago's B96 or Dance Factory plays more hard house style old school. It's radio stations that rep what people hear in that city. Yes, it's part of a city's culture.

I'm unique like that.

-shrugs-
Downtown STL has never really done anything for me. Given the choice between a trip to Downtown STL and the downtown of most other midwestern cities, I am going with the other cities. That is just my opinion, and I know that others feel the same way about downtown Indianapolis and that is fine too.

However, Lafayette Square in STL is one of my favorite midwestern neighborhoods, along with Mt. Adams in Cincinnati.

Then one can only suppose that electronica is not popular in the Lou. (Thank you, Jesus!)

Thread creep, but I wish I saw a shuttle launch at some point in my life.

One more off-topic, and I will be good......
DP, its too bad that you couldnt, I can see the launches from the back paddock of the farm, but one really needs to get close to really appreciate the miracle of engineering that the shuttle is, and to feel the roar of the launch hit you in the chest like a sonic boom.
Speaking of which, I will miss the twin sonic booms very much, we could hear them rolling in across the Forest before they actually hit, truly an awe-inspiring experience.
Back on-topic, I'm still laughing about your "Trance Jesus" post.

heard the sonic booms many times when they landed at Edwards. Occasionally you see something taking off from Vandenberg
