Well if you guys on the east n west coast would stop releasing the urinal deposits as you fly over it may help our depressing city.

Numbers aren't accurate we divided counties and municipalities within the St Louis metropolitan area and it made our stats look horrific on paper.

Best hospitals top ranked colleges with the best fan base around for sports.

Anhueser Bush Monsanto Boeing Express Scripts Emerson Electric Brown Shoe the list goes on.

Given our market size - we rock baby

What I don't understand is how StL has the companies but then lets them be the acquired instead of being agressive and becoming the acquirer.

AB - should have been doing what InBev had been doing instead of being a victim.

Ralston Purina.

Mc Donnell gets so cautious that Boeing gets them.

You long termers in the area may understand it but I sure don't. Be a leader in your industry then gradually get too soft and become the target.

It's all very common - companies struggle with second generation and the third generation struggles even more so.

The companies you mention - were perfect examples.

I could name 100 more just like em - Bussman Brod Dugan May Company Edison Brothers list goes on n on.

Don't get me wrong there are some damn strong companies here like Express Scripts but once being the 4th largest city we became the we do not want you city when others were offering TIF money.
