Come to find out there's a reason the St. Louis Arch is so famous -- and here all along I just figured it had a good publicist.
No: it's more than that. It's freakin' cool. Proto-Gehryesque, soaring stainless and pitch perfect into the sky.
Many thanks to B1-67er who suggested (in true b1- style -- which is to say, more firm direction than suggestion) that I NOT miss it while I was town.
And so I didn't.
