To bolster what you said, Justified, I agree with you. Both my Mother or my Father could drive our 57 chevrolet down roads that were far inferior to the roads that we drive today, and do it safely. Of course we did not have cell phones to distract us, I can guarantee that if we did my parents would have never used or answered the phone when they were transporting their children or even just themselves. People today seem to have to micro manage everyone around them. Over half of the women on missouri blvd are hiding behind a cell phone and the number for men is nearly as bad. I hope that in the near future that cell phone use while driving becomes a very serious offense, punishable by jail time. This woman needs to be charged with assault because of her actions, trust me it won't happen. Hopefully the child will be okay, and hopefully he will be far more intelligent than his mother, unlikely. Fruit falls close to the tree.

This is an interesting story. The man obviously did not harm the children so he appears to not be a threat to them. I wonder why he felt that he had to kidnap them. Unfair treatment from the courts, or not enough money to fight for them, or past criminal record, or some other reason? I am curious as to what unfolds in future news stories. He certainly did not take the correct actions in trying to get his children, assuming that they are his children. I hope that all the facts are accurately reported by the news concerning both he and the mother. It is unfortunate for a situation like this to happen and the cost to the taxpayer to search for the children had to be enormous. I hope this story has a happy ending.
to livefree, sorry your assumption is as a inaccurate as your financial knowledge. no stock or financial ties to Ameren or any other utility. I just know what is the best path for all concerned. Nor is any private company is going to build any cash cows wiithout ripping everbody off.

Retired power plant worker says. The new power plant will be built sooner or later. With assistance from the users now, the future cost will be far lower than if the utilities involved have to bear the cost burden of building the plant on their own. Staying ahead of the game (generating surplus electricity and selling to short sighted communities) is one of the reasons our electricity cost is about one-half of the rest of the nation. People that have the notion that the power companies have the money to instantly create an 8 Billion dollar complex without financial support live in a dream world that will soon turn into a nightmare, that their children and grandchildren will pay for. A five percent increase in your current bill will save you a forty percent increase in you and your childrens future bills. Our current gasoline cost is similar to the rest of the nation, so is the same for satelite TV, cell phone service, and other luxeries. this is not true for our electricity service, you can find on the web, what the the rest of the nation pays. Wake up people, help build a new plant.
According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol accident report, Gov. nixon was the only person in the car not wearing his seat belt. Should the Gov. be exempt from state laws?
treehouse you are correct. People that do things of this nature are spoiled, inconsiderate and useless. This world needs people with green thoughts(recycle and help others). I hope that thoughts like these die soon.
The idea behind pay a little now for future power versus trying to finance future power will keep our prices low. We already enjoy some of the lowest cost power in the US. Please reconsider your uneducated thoughts before you drive the cost of our power up for everyone around you. Ameren currently sells power to other utilities keeping our costs down, when Ameren has to start buying power from other utilities our costs will increase by at least 40% per month. With the coming of electric cars our demand is going to increase a great deal. check out this web site to view power prices. w.eia.doe.gov/electricity/epm/table5_6_b.html
