St Louis is batting .500

No, I’m not talking about baseball. Here are two articles that show how St. Louis can be at opposite ends on two issues of the environmental movement.

First is an article entitled “Airports Fast-Track Rail Projects” by Thomas Frank at USA Today. I was amazed to see St. Louis ahead of the curve here. 

The other article, entitled “Oklahoma City Swaps Highway for Park” by Dennis Cauchon, also at USA Today, shows how St. Louis is behind on this one. We’ve been discussing this option for YEARS now regarding our downtown, the highway and the Arch grounds.
