American Tea Party

Welcome to the America of Our Dreams

Jim Durbin called me this evening. “Are you excited?” he asked. Jim was in the crowd at the very first Tea Party in St. Louis, February 27, 2009. A cold Friday. He and more than a thousand other folks took off work and school to see what this protest was all about. Like so many …

How Herbert Hoover Launched Cardinal Nation

The St. Louis Cardinals were the major league team farthest west and farthest south until the 1950s.  But that’s not the only reason the Redbirds built a massive flock of fans from the Alleghenies to the Rockies, and from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico.

Flow-Thru Afterglow

Dangerous Thoughts Standing in the Wings Why are you here? I thought. I was standing on the steps of the Arch fully aware that my fingers were painfully cold when the wrong thought crossed my mind.  By “wrong thought,” I mean that one thought that will subconsciously sabotage the important or dangerous thing you are …
