Ferguson is St. Louis county, not city. I always thought our crime rate was out of proportion bc we don't use the county stats, just the city. Most other cities the county and city are the same

Well shit, I was thinking about moving back to St. Louis now that I am retired, but maybe that is not a well though-out thing. I was looking for a house in south St. Louis city, but now there is a revival of Knockout Games there, too. I wonder if house boats are illegal. Didn't they make the Admiral move?

That would involve leaving the "bubble" and being realistic, taking culture and lifestyle into account, and reporting on things that will "offend" people. No, too much work to do that type of journalism. Just focus on the number of Murders and ignore all other information.

It's the North side. Gangs and Drugs. What do you expect? Its thug life. It's a natural cycle.
