Today's comment comes in response to an article examining the ongoing traffic jams at the Hampton Avenue of Forest Park. After a new traffic plan failed
to alleviate the gridlock this weekend, we asked the question: How do you spot a St. Louis tourist? Answer: They're the people waiting 40 minutes on enter the Forest Park on Hampton.
Reader "Chris" wrote in to say that we got the answer correct, but the question wrong:
Instead of "How do you spot a St. Louis tourist?" it should be "How do
you spot a St. Louis suburbanite who refuses to learn more about the
city at the heart of the region?"
As usual, the general
population will blame everybody else (the police, the city, minorities)
before they look at themselves and maybe discover that their method of
doing things (using only the Hampton Exit) is not the best way to do
something, and -- gasp -- make a change to their lifestyles.
