Ambitious, uncompromisingly determined, tragic-in-hindsight... I won't bore you with why. Modern-day STL could use a shot of this map's strong will and grit, a dose of this map's refined class, and maybe a sprinkle of this map's river traffic.
But if we want to busy our brightest young minds saving a Del Taco building, I mean. That's cool too, I guess. But once we get that done, y'all gotta promise me we'll work on the public schools, deal?
So says STL's proudest son: the 59 King. Peace, and take care of one another.
