Guess what? I'm the kind of gal who gets "Parents" magazine in the mail now...even if it does still get shoved to the bottom of the pile (under "Entertainment Weekly"). And in the latest issue, in the rankings of the Ten Best Science Centers, our own
St. Louis Science Center pulls out a #5 spot...not least for something called "Science Goes Splat," described thusly: "a show where balls, water balloons and even pumpkins are tossed out a third-floor window—and the audience gets to guess which one will fall the fastest."
After hitting my polling place (Marian Middle School repreSENT!) this a.m., I was rewarded with a spiffy new version of the old "I Voted" sticker. Don't know who's paying for this one (kinda scared to know, in fact), but it seems that the STL has sprung for customized stickers, with a very patriotic skyline — Arch and waving flag and whatnot — and the taglines "Proud City" and "Proud Voter" surrounding the obligatory "I Voted."
