THose of us who have been in St. Louis long enough have seen a lot of areas that now have thriving businesses/residential areas under water at one point. EVerytime I go to the Valley, I think of the water up to the roof of Annie Gunns. Places like New Town and Chesterfield Valley have taken good flood precaution, but frankly... if the country has one of *those* rains spurts, and you all know what I am talking about, both would be at risk in addition to a lot of other areas....

Maybe you should come out for Jazz Night to see what the racial makeup is. Sounds a little racist to me.

You must be a Faux News fanboy. I am calling the residents, not all of the denizens, but a sizable portion of the New Town population, possible racists for wanting to ape the urban scene without Teh Blak Foks around. You cannot tell me that all of the New Townies are kumbaya civil libertarians.

True, imagine if one year the midwest were to receive TWICE the amount of rain that fell in 1993. New Town and C-Field valley would go under.
