Lunch with Bill


Readers of the Post-Dispatch are familiar with columnist Bill McClellan. His detractors claim that he only writes about lowlifes, or more charitably, “losers.” And what’s wrong with that? People in trouble, or down on their luck, or a half-bubble off level – they’re still people. You might not want to have ´em over for dinner, but a little visit with ´em over morning coffee – via Bill’s column – is not a bad way to start the day. McClellan discusses the people who’ve made his column at 12:15 p.m. today in room 229 in the J.C. Penney Conference Center on the campus of University Missouri-St. Louis (1 University Drive and Natural Bridge Road; 314-516-5699 or His talk is entitled “Characters I’ve Met,” and it promises to be a quirky, rewarding start to UMSL’s Monday Noon Series of cultural lectures. Admission is free, and light refreshments are provided.
