New Yorkers think Baltimore is half Southern and Chicagoans think St. Louis is half Southern because they have never been South of the Mason Dixon.
We go south of the Mason Dixon line, New Orleans and Miami. There's nothing else.

Our job market is great and our economy is constantly expanding right now. Besides, our tallest building is taller than everything in St. Louis. Ok Omaha is a great city to visit 1) why is size a factor anyway but here goes. We have booming western suburbs that have caused many new malls to be built. 3 within the last decade. 2) We have one of the best zoos in the country, we have a huge music scene, we have the old market in downtown, the Qwest center attracts most major concerts, and we are developing the Lewis and Clark landing site 3) why is public transportation a factor anyway? Well omaha has a few buses but thats about it
I'm not going to say anything. How's that. LOL!

I have nothing against Chicagoans, as long as they don't act like St. Louis is less of a quality city because of its size.

I have heard that there's a bit of this kind of resentment between KC and STL, but I haven't experienced it firsthand.

Basically St. Louis and Chicago are both wonderful cities, and no city is right for everyone. I think St. Louis just wants to prove itself as a city that is as "good" as Chicago, though neither is better.
Hey I'm not some Chicagoan jerk. But let's be truthful! To suggest that Chicago and St. Louis is the same quality or caliber on any level is laughable, ludicrous and out and out delusional. Now I'm all for political correctness, but PLEASE, GIVE ME A BREAK!

Where are you coming up with these analogies? From Fourth grade? You would have to be the most uneducated person and uninstinctual person on the planet to say that St. Louis isn't Midwestern. For your information, not every city has to be like Chicago to be considered Midwestern. Of all the people qualified to judge St. Louis, you are among the least qualified. From everything you have said so far, I would have to conclude that you know very little about this city, or were on drugs when you visited it. If you weren't on drugs, I guess you just have the saddest judgement out there.

Right..u just throw out these random statements about St. Louis with no facts or basis to back them up. You are about as on as something that's off So long, hope you and chitownwarrior have fun trying to modify facts you can't modify.

You have no sense of humor whatsoever. At least I'm able to laugh at myself. You know what you need, a good ______! LOL! But I doubt you'd be able to get one in St. Louis.

HAHAHA. he makes st. louis look so bad and is making a fool of himself. the people of st. louis should ban him from the city. he needs to learn how to interact with people and get a freaking sense of humer. maybe getting a good _____ will cure him .

afj are you a member of urbanstl? after reading some posts there, i doubt they would accept you into their community with your thoughts and strange bizzarro ways, as they seem to all be extreme urban enthusiasts...
