"Don't look now, but there's one man too many in this room, and I think it's you."
-- Rufus T. Firefly (Groucho Marx) in Duck Soup

I was struck by a very poor example of web citizenship recently. For years, St. Louis has had something of a home page with all sorts of community information (news, arts, sports, community links, etc.) at the pretty-logical address It was useful in that any time I wanted to make the words "St. Louis" a link, I could just point there.

Without warning, and without an alternative home provided for the pages, and without useful redirection pages corresponding to the old links, the site's been eliminated. If you go to that address now, you see the home page for the St. Louis Regional Commerce and Growth Association. Not exactly the general-interest stuff you'd expect by going to a city's vanilla URL, eh?

The closest thing I've found to replace the old site in terms of serving as a general link is It's not as comprehensive as the original was, but one takes what one can get.
