And your reason for visiting this city is....?
In an effort to get a full cultural experience of St Louis, I ventured downtown yesterday to see what it could offer me. As advised, I went to see the arch, or as it is more precisely called, "Jefferson National Expansion Memorial". Web pages devoted to its construction, and numerous brochures, could not answer my one question pertaining to its existence, and that is, simply, why? The best explanation afforded me came from a cab driver today, and that was, "Well, every city has to have some reason for people to come and visit." Apparently so, but according to billboards sited above one of the many highways, the reason to come to St Louis' casinos is for "The Loosest Slots in the Country".
No matter which way I read that, it still sounds rude.
