Mini Breakin' Videos

These were shot at The Commonspace on February 21. Thanks to Ryan McCoy for capturing the moment with his itty bitty hidden spy cam.

Well, well, well...Drebes goes big

Confirming a long-rumored deal, next week's St. Louis Business Journal carries on its editorial page the first of a new regular column by Arch City Chronicle publisher Dave Drebes (complete with a kinda smirky picture of the man); STLBJ publisher Ellen Sherberg comments at length on the addition in her column.

Among other things, she writes: "Mr. a former stock broker and a keen political observer. In the past his views sometimes disagreed with the official editorial stands we've taken, especially dealing with the development of the Old Post Office, a project this newspaper deems critical to the rebuilding of downtown. So some of his friends and cohorts will probably consider him a heretic to write for the business press and some of our friends might raise an eyebrow that we're keeping company with a rabble-rouser of sorts."

Rouse the rabble, young columnist! Your cohorts are behind you!

Death on the Board of Aldermen

Breaking news: 23rd Ward Alderwoman Colleen M. Sondermann has died today, a bit unexpectedly, from what I understand. (She has been battling cancer for a while, but this was sudden.)

Shrinking City Syndrome

From an article in the Feb. 5 issue of the NY Times:

"Some cities that were bustling centers of commerce just a generation ago have become modern-day Pompeiis. Cities that have lost more than a third of their population include St. Louis, Phnom Penh and Johannesburg."

Ah, such lovely company we keep.

Add Some, Lose Some at the RFT

New managing editor notwithstanding, the RFT chalks one up in the "loss" category today, with calendar editor Byron Kerman being released from his employment there. Paul Friswold takes his place.

And the beat goes on...
