    On my way last year down route 66, a very nice fellow in Illinois, told me to take the 270 bypass only. I had foolishly taken the old road through St. Louis 6 years ago and had to run red lights to avoid African American zombies who tried to attack me at the red lights. The 270 bypass, obviously the invention of educated folks who tend to avoid places where these zombies live, is a life saver. I was able to observe the Chain of Rocks bridge and avoid Florrisant and Ferguson, unlike the last time I drove through this area. Make no mistake, for every store robbing black yoot taken down by a cop who might be white, there are 50 black men a month being murdered by other black men in St. Louis. Tragic, but as one commentator opined, “This seems to be a problem that sooner or later will solve itself.”

    • I have heard similar stories about Detroit. And when the chief of Police is advising citizens to arm themselves well you know your town is run by Democrats.

      That’s the funniest thing I’ve heard all week. Worthy of Mark Twain’s finest.

  • I always hated playing in St. Louis.

    Missouri is a failed state.

    I studied in KC once…..half town is Kansas and half is Missouri.
    We’d plan to all meet for beers in someone’s room later……last word from those boys was always ” okay guys 6 o’clock no guns leave your guns”
    Everybody had a revolver …..or whatever but they knew beer bullshit and guns don’t fit.
