St Louis is a great place. I lived there for about a year and loved it.
I agree, I lived downtown in the Lafayette District. You forgot to add City Museum as one of the things that makes it a great place to be. Also, St Louis is #2 in the nation for the most free stuff to do. Zoo, Science Museum, Etc. (D.C. is #1.)He's right. I crack a lot of jokes but I was raised there and still live here. It is just EXTREMLEY devided and segregated (North county, West County, South County) in it's politics and lifestyle. Unfortunately it always seems to be one step forward two steps back for the city its self (see metro link and the many "re-births" of the downtown") The upsides of the city are Soulard, The Hill, Dogtown, Forest Park, the Loop, etc. All the little neighborhoods that make the town a great place to grow up and live.
Perhaps because of the size of the welfare population? (this is where I'd insert the smiley ducking the tomato, which apparently doesn't on JC! )I didn't know we were ranked #2 in the nation for free stuff...Funny, that I'm moving to DC and it's #1...lol movin up in the world.
I live in Missouri, but I'm technically going for a Kansas facility (ZKC)... I haven't checked the staffing situation in a month or two, but the last I knew it was going to be around 80%"ish" staffed for '09.Does anybody know the need for controllers in Missouri?
"Oh-lah-they." From a friend in North Dakota.For those who are unfamiliar... Olathe is pronounced "oh-lay-tha", NOT "oh-laith." I've also heard people say "oh-lah-thee", lol.
LOL, that's great. That's a creative one."Oh-lah-they." From a friend in North Dakota.
"Then I have to go to some place called... O-la-they in Kansas... you know where that's at?"
Where is that? I'm in St. Louis until Sunday (just went to TRACON this morning) and would love to see it.We have the worlds largest half completed McDonalds sign.... We havent gotten the other half finished or painted it yet. But you can go up in it and see the sprawling metropolis that is St. Louis.
