Really think people are going to come to Jeff City just for a train show? We have NO other entertainment to offer... St. Louis has a whole slew of fun famil things to do. What do we have, we don't even have a chuck e. cheese for the kiddos. Drag the kids to go see some decrepit prison? Families will NOT come vacation here and no one wants to have a conference here b/c there is nothing to do after hours! We have conference rooms out at Truman Hotel and at Capital Plaza that accomodate most events just fine.

JCLIfer, I don't know if this is the accurate or correct terminology, but to me, an assault weapon is a gun that is designed for anything other than hunting animals. You don't need huge magazine clips to go deer hunting. It's something that allows you to rapidly discharge the trigger without reloading, something that looks military in style and has NO good use other than so called "target shooting". Handguns and deer rifles, fine, they should work just peachy for that home invasion scenario that the gun lovers tout on and on about, or to stop a robbery etc. No one needs anything that you can put more than 5 bullets in, if you have to stop and reload that makes it awfully inconvenient to blow away a mass number of people quickly.

If I'm reading this article correctly, it's stating that some of the staff at Pathways KNEW that she had made a threat directly about going to hurt/wanting to hurt Elizabeth and no one warned the family..then yes, they should be sued! I would do the same. If someone had knowledge of a credible threat of bodily harm against my child and didn't tell me.....no way I could let that go!

Eileen, I think you would be better off avoiding the Spot - young crowd, kinda sketchy - loud music, biker bar atmosphere. The Mission has an older more sophisiticated clientle.

Seriously? Why is someone from Arkansas who's only accomplishment is a worn out uterus and having her children raise her other children trumping for anyone running that has nothing to do with her state? How does a woman with 19 kids find the time to go campaigning anyway? Oh that's right, she dumps the babies off on her older children to raise. Could this race become ANY more of a JOKE?

Mistakes happen because of humans, criminal negligence happens when corporations try to cover up human mistakes..

If anyone believes any one man can bring "better days" they are foolish. No matter who the president is, he cannot wave a magic wand and make everything better. If the 2 parties would stop squabbling over who's right or wrong, who has more power, blocking everything the other party tires to do instead of actually working on creating positive energy and bipartisanship then maybe we would have better days...

Some people have to spend that little bit they saved up for their kids school supplies...emergency dental work or doctor bills... saving is HARD when you don't make a living wage to support your family, or lost your good paying job due to the economy and had to take one that pays much less just to get insurance benefits. Back in your grandparents days I bet milk wasn't $4 a gallon eitehr!
