Rush hour traffic on Poplar Bridge

Eastbound motorists drive on I-64 into Illinois over the Poplar Street Bridge during rush hour on Wednesday, March 31, 2021. Motorists driving from Missouri to Illinois can expect major delays beginning April 1st, as the three right lanes of eastbound Interstate 55/64, as well as the ramp to southbound Illinois 3 and the ramp to southbound Tudor Avenue in East St. Louis, will close on April 1st (weather permitting), on the Poplar Street Bridge in East St. Louis for a project to replace decking. Extensive delays are expected during weekday evening rush hours. The lane closures are expected to be in place until early October. Photo by Laurie Skrivan,

I will drink Coke and fly Delta and watch every Major League Baseball game in honor of their efforts to condemn the recent voter suppression laws in their home state.

The Georgia Legislature, like the Missouri Legislature, furthers the stolen election lie as a cover for depriving their citizens of democracy. The Missouri Legislature has perfected this by refusing to implement laws enacted by overwhelming majorities relating to lobbying, health care and voting rights.

St. Louis should refuse to be a part of Missouri any longer. St. Louis city and county should consider being annexed by Illinois. Our votes don't count in Missouri. At least my vote would count in Illinois. There may be other things wrong with the state, but how bad will it continue to get here in Missouri?
