When Will They Ever Learn?

February 7, 2016

Remember the song, “Where Have All the Flowers Gone?” The chorus is, “When Will They Ever Learn?”

Stan Kroenke and a partner want to build a project here in Maryland Heights.

Stan and his partner want (drumroll, please) taxpayer funding, and to build in a flood plain.

In addition to Stan’s open disdain for St. Louis, and to the money the area lost on trying to keep his Rams here, the St. Louis area was just hit by historic flooding, in part caused by relentless building in flood plains. You’d think this would be the trifecta of a no-brainer: NO, Stan! NO!

But officials are considering the proposal.

When WILL they ever learn?
