Just like other south side neighborhoods

Wow, what’s up with this: a shooting in the middle of the afternoon in the parking lot of Vincents Grocery Store on S. 12th Street? Shots fired? The police say it was a drug deal gone bad?

It all happened on Tuesday, April 2, 2013. Isn’t that exciting? Soulard is getting to be just like other south side neighborhoods. Like they say, if you don’t like the level of crime, then it’s time to move. Meanwhile, let’s talk about our next party and forget about any problems or issues. Neighborhood revitalization isn’t dead in Soulard (or St. Louis). It’s at a party.

I wholeheartedly agree with every syllable of your blog. I can't tell you the number of times I've been told "It's time for you to leave"...usually from a sympathetic bartender.

I hear we made the news again this weekend. I don't see anything obvious in the local news. Not surprised. The one good thing our Alderwoman is good at is suppressing crime reporting.

Looking forward to your updates, assuming you didn't give up and throw in the towel.
