Well that is a bit slanted.  St. Louis is the only city in the US that does 
not have a county or parish attached to it.  The surrounding area wasn't 
counted.  I'm sure that the inner city of almost any city is pretty rough 
and there are parts of this city I just won't go into and race has little to 
do with it as some might think.  There are Black, White and Oriental 
neighborhoods you just don't want to visit unless you have to.  It's what 
got Gaslight Square in the 60's.

I think that if the surrounding area was counted with it's bedroom 
communities (150 of them) it would be a different story.  My Daughter-in-law 
(who lives in Germany) is terrified of the US in general and St. Louis in 
particular because of the constant crap that is put on TV there, and here 
too, about the US.  I guess that's the price of a free press.  Stay out of 
North St. Louis, a few parts of S. St. Louis and all of East St. Louis, you 
might live to be almost 30.

I would get bored if someone wasn't shooting at me.  Hey it keeps out the 
riff raff.
St. Louis
