Interesting St. Louis stories from the past week

(please add your own in the comments section)

A story on the community group that is asking for a Community Benefits Agreement from developer Paul McKee, who has been buying up land in North St. Louis and letting it deteriorate in hopes of a transformative project .

Another great RFT story from Aimee Levitt on Camp Kumquat, the WashU community garden.

Protestors blocked I-70 for a bit prior the the all star game protesting the lack of minority businesses hired for local public projects.

Don Calloway continues his series on being a freshman legislator in Jefferson City.

MO Congressional Representative is gaining national attention for possibly being an even more crazy global warming denier than Oklahoma Senator Inhofe, and that's saying something! 

Cynthia Davis, the MO representative who infamously said that "hunger is a positive motivator" in defense of cutting after school food programs, also is one of the crazies who think that Obama is not a U.S. citizen.  Who would have thought!

Missourians Against the Death Penalty have their new summer newsletter out!
