This made me mad on so many levels. I won't go into it all here because I try really hard not to use this blog for crazy rants. I'll just say that I believe in this city. Yes, it has it's fair share of problems, but I believe that there are good people here working to make it better. And for that matter, I believe there are so many things about this city that are already great. Things that don't get enough attention or are maybe taken for granted.
Lucky for me, I was bombarded with STL pride this afternoon.
First, there was the STL Style newsletter in my inbox. They've inspired me to add these to my wish list:
a city flag
a 4th edition City Neighborhoods map (I bought it in green earlier this year for the boy and am tempted to get the red for myself....)
They also promoted this SGC event that is going down on Cherokee Street next Friday. I visited All Along Press a while back and have admired their (and other Cherokee Street shops') work for a while now. I think I know how I'm spending next Friday evening....
And then I saw this video from Sauce Magazine. The skyline shots are enough to make me fall in love....
I love Saint Louis. I'm not giving up on it (and 'moving out to the country where the only thing that gets shot at is deer') just yet.
