Blairmont Site Assembly Heading to the Long Final March

. Has Paul McKee's Blairmont juggernaut slowed? Not likely.

The hold-up may be due to capital flow issues, or perhaps it's a strategic timing to avoid greater scrutiny in the wake of recent publicity. Read on for the latest on Blairmont's landbanking in North St. Louis.

From Ecology of Absence blog: Oh, what a fine evening it was for seven young men to congregate on the steps of the house at 1215 Wright Street in Old North St. Louis. No finer point for commerce could be found within blocks, and business seemed to be as good there as it usually is.

Corporate media on the homeless

Lately the corporate media have mentioned the homeless more than usual.

A day or two before the Straussenfest "corporate party for middle-class drunks", the corporate media interviewed Larry Rice about the status of homeless people in the area. We know Mr. Rice has his own agenda and it could easily be said he's exploiting the homeless for his own gains, but he obviously did more than the "all talk, no action" IMC posters who just bickered without doing anything. If anyone here actually did something at the homeless park this past weekend, feel free to post about it.
