Can it be true? With the closing of the Post-Dispatch’s Weatherbird
cafeteria in the paper’s building, word is that Lee Enterprises is

“Sometimes – not often, to be sure – it seems to me that a work of art can become something bigger, something more, something that even the artist who created it no longer has the right to mess with. ‘To Kill A Mockingbird’ is one of those rare creations, in my judgement, and I fear that publication of ‘Go Set A Watchman’ – a 60 year-old rejected draft manuscript by ‘Mockingbird’ author Harper Lee – may end up damaging the hallowed status of ‘Mockingbird’ in our shared culture.”

Jay Nixon being named Ambassador to Ruritania, watching on YouTube the documentary of “The Golden Girls,” an airline that’s cheap, fast and on time, a weekly pseudo society magazine without the mug shots of Maxine Clark, Marilyn Fox, Mike Neidorf, Tim and Kim Eberlein or Trish Tobin.
Still getting a kick out of being a St. Louisan.
