DoctorWhat:A few weeks ago, she says, a man who was running from the police fled through the corn to hide in her yard, until she chased him off.

That, not so much.


Maybe she shouldn't live in an criminal cesspool city where people run from the cops. A guy hides in your yard and it's the corn's fault?

Just run a 'Crime Stats Map' on the real-life addy of Judy Garland's house from "Meet Me In St Louis" @ 5135 Kensington & figure any re-make would have her avenging Margaret O'Brien's death in the first reel with a TEC-9

That neighborhood really isn't *that* bad.

It's within walking distance of two popular night spots (the Loop and the Central West End), and is only a few blocks from Forest Park.

Not saying you should take a walk through the park alone at night and you shouldn't be aware of your surroundings.

NIMBYISM. It's not just for rich white folks any more.

Cornflakes. It's what's for breakfast.

Nestchick: mjohnson71: Snarfangel: St. Louis, often recipient of the "most dangerous city" award is not terrorizing its residents with horribly scary urban agriculture

Is not? Well, that's a relief.

It actually isn't. The problem is the city of St. Louis is pretty small when compared to other cities of the same metropolitan size. In addition St. Louis City and St. Louis County are two totally separate entities.

If you compare metropolitan area to metropolitan area, St. Louis' crime stats are the same (if not lower) as other mid-sized (1 to 4 million) metro areas. We're just stuck with a lot of bad decisions made 140+ years ago.

I'm visiting next month and assumed it would be safe to take public transit from the STL airport to the Hilton by the arch. Am I wrong? I never heard. St. Louis as a dangerous place; East St. Louis, yes.


You are gonna be fine...just be sure you hop off before it crosses the river and keep your bags close

I wanted to strangle those people.  You live in the ghetto and are pissed off that someone is coming in, hiring folks to pick corn and even giving you some of that corn?  Because you missed the days when all that was there was a polluted superfund site?  Are you farking kidding me?

The sad thing is the people biatching about it are (probably) in no way representative of the overall feeling in the neighborhood towards the farm.  But "people like farm" isn't much of a story.

Is it just me, or could so many news stories end with a gigantic (and sarcastic) "Waaaahhh!"?
