Well, okay, now that my interest in Tami Erin (see http://spriggsblog.blogspot.ca/2013/10/pippi-is-lisbeth-or-at-least-tami-is.html) has waned, we can now return to my other current fascination -- the city of St. Louis, Missouri. http://spriggsblog.blogspot.ca/2013/09/meet-me-in-st-louis-lewis.html
And what a beautiful city it would seem to be!
Now, here's the thing. In my previous post, i wrote that, evidently, St Louis has a high crime rate. This turns out not to be true at all http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VZFODAoYwOo
It's like Toronto. The G.T.A. (Greater Toronto Area) has a very high crime rate, but the city of Toronto is a relatively small part of the G.T.A., and has a low crime rate. The Jane-Finch corridor, however (northwestern part and well outside the city itself) is a war zone.
Anyway, back to the subject.... I'm not a baseball fan at all but in the World Series, it was St Louis vs. Boston and i was wrapped up in it. Some seat-gripping moments there! Well, okay, the Cardinals lost (to, as John Ulett called them, the "Beantown Beardies") and i was disappointed, but maybe the St Louis Blues will do better in hockey.
