Independence Weekend

26 06 2017

Forest Park

City Hall and the MCWM have quickly settled their dispute.  The MCWM will take possession, at their expense, of the UDC monument, and the speculated time frame has it out of FoPo by the end of the week.  Which means it will be gone by the start of the extended 4th of July weekend.  St. Louis City is declaring its independence from the piece of concrete and stone that has been the exclusive singular cause of all its problems in the 102 years it has been on display.

That said, I’m surprised Lyda is wiping her hands of the matter so quickly.  Like I’ve been saying, as long as this thing is A Thing, it’s an issue that almost everyone important in the city can agree on.  Now that this issue is just a work week away from being totally off the table, it won’t be long until Lyda will have to resume stepping on toes and dealing with divisive issues and potentially step on people’s toes.

Then again, it might work out that getting the UDC monument out of Forest Park will solve all the city ‘s problems.  Friday just might be the final day of violent crime in the city.  If any happen after then, incredulity will set in.

The more I think about it .. all of these monuments should be pulled back to white-safe areas rather than mug-prone, fag-prone urban parks. The most dangerous areas should be name MLK Jr. Blvd and have nothing beautiful, heroic or artistic in them.

Late gossip is that MCWM is going to seek either a relevant cemetery or period battlefield somewhere not in St. Louis City or County as the new home.

I wish that I had enough money to buy all the Confederate monuments taken down and to be taken down and any other politically incorrect statue, and put it in a big warehouse and call it a museum and charge a nominal fee. I wish that I could do that.

How much would police overtime cost if the City became another battle in the escalating conflict? How much in lost tax revenues?

It’s almost an absurd question until receny, but do you think Insurance companies are asking about monuments?

City is blowing through its cop overtime budget so quickly that it’ll be parched well before the end of the year.
