Blessed to live in the boring MidWest


The images on the TV news this morning were surreal. Hundereds of people dead, missing, homeless because of Katrina and her aftermath. It really hit me this afternoon while walking a couple of blocks for a sandwich on this beautiful sunny day in St. Louis. How lucky I am to be here and not there. Not that things are always perfect here, we had a devastating flood in '93, our share of tornadoes and we're waiting for that big New Madrid earthquake to hit. I kind of like boring. I don't know how I would cope with losing my family, my house, my job, my business or my town. I hope all of you reading this do your part to help in whatever way you can. I hope that you and your family are safe.
