Phrase of the day: "broccoli residue".

Jonathan Steinke

Indeed, Kat!! Wide, long AND fat.

Listener James from Westwood

Holy shit, this rag reads like Ellroy's Hush-Hush edited by Dolemite! Props to Steinke for this post!!

Jonathan Steinke

Thanx, James! I ought to coax a family member into pickin up "Crime Wave" for me for my birthday. Heard James Ellroy's a real pistol.

Joe Stumble

Damn Straight! Tha Loo doesn't fuck around!

I fear that we might be waiting a long time for the Evening Whirl website to get up-to-date. Its front-page story is dated July 11, 2005, and it boasts a photo of the St. Louis skyline featuring the older (and in my opinion, far superior) Busch Stadium.

Logan

Awesome. Great to see an update after I read the Believer article. I am envious of St. Louisites.

Jonathan Steinke

Thanx, Texas Prairie Chicken (beautiful, love it!)! I don't know what the h-e-double-hockeysticks the deal is with they not getting the site up and actually running. What if 7/11 runs out of the paper versions one week? Ya know? Or if it's raining down torrents? Seems kinda shortsighted (: I never saw a game at the old Busch but would have enjoyed seeing one there, I'm sure. The new one is just what you'd expect a glossy, state-of-the-art multi-million dollar ballpark complex to be...nothing spectacular or memorable, really.

And thank YOU, Logan! One afternoon I was just sauntering down the block up to the Gravois and Jefferson 7/11 to get snacks and, lo and effin' behold, there it was! A heartrending sight to behold.

Believe it or not, today's Whirl is downright respectable compared to its pre-1990 black-and-white incarnation. Many an old Whirl subhed became a catchphrase among my circle of friends, including "I'm A Glowing Fag - I Rob Banks And Love Men Devotedly".

yayo

Oh please Acapulco Rodriguez, name your next premium "Acapulco Gold".

Eric

Ohhhhh yeah, I remember what the Whirl was like when I was a little kid. Politically correct it was most decidedly NOT. I... probably shouldn't have been reading it as a little kid.

Funny to be reading the WFMU blog and see stuff about my burg here!

Jonathan Steinke

Killerrrr!! Big ups to Yayo and my 3-1-FO peoples!!

Amelda Walton

I am a strong black single mother of two whom does whatever for my children to make sure they be great citizens in society. I have a 9 year old son who has been assaulting his teachers and peers at school. He has been suspended from school 5 times in the month of October. He bangs his head up against wall for attention. My son has sent a little girl to the hospital as well as pushed a little boy in the nose. He constantly runs away, I think just about every city cop on the Southside of St. Louis has had encounter with him. He cusses me out and has fought me several times. He is under a psychartic,a therapist, department of mental health, children's divison and no one seems to know what to do with him. Not mention there has never been any real physical abuse but I was accused of abuse when he had belt marks on his bottom. The skin was not broken. He has a dead beat father! They say he needs a father, so if anybody no where I can buy a father let me know! Because I don't won't NO man that likes little boys or girls around my children or no drugdealer or no woman BEATER! Not to mention he smears poop and urinates all over my apartment!Yes! he just whips it out. The state of Missouri says no spanking your child, I think this is exactly what he needs a down south big momma spanking, St. Louis what do you think? Oh, I forgot he has been in child mental institutions over 15 times! Now, I figure they don't want me to spank my son because this is another black man growing up diagnosis with ADHD who is ends up going to juve later and then to the pen or in the grave regardless if he ends up in the pen for murdering someone the state gets $10,000 a day for a prisoner, Why do my son have to be that prisoner? I fear the worst already and because I have been in every program that I possibly can enroll in for my child they are waiting on me to hurt my son and I be faced with prison time or if I hold on long enough, he will be faced with prison, What do you think?

caremen

call youth in need maybe they can help you ..... good luck ...and god bless

Amelda's son probably could have used a father. There's not a program imaginable that's anywhere near as good for a kid as having two decent parents.

Patrice Tisdale

I was tased on October 21, 2008 and submitted a complaint the following day. I submitted that complaint to the trusted department (IAD) Bureau of Professional Responsibility. I was denied access to the police report up until I received a summons which stated I interfered with an officer not a police investigation. After reading the summons and police report they both concur that I was tased as of a result of pushing on two St. Louis County police officers repeatedly. But during my trail the two officers testified under oath that I did not do what I was alleged of doing. So please explain to me how they can go unpunished for tasing me while embracing my brother who was brutally attacked. If they can fabricate my allegedly pushing them how far can they go. How is this behavior excused by any persons let alone a Law Enforcement Officer? How does this help to maintain my safety or the public safety when an officer(s) are allowed to create reports of this magnitude and strip away my lively hood (private security armed officer) and nothing absolutely nothing be done about this.

YES, the court found me guilty by amending the circumstances to interfering by grabbing my brother and throwing our I was pushing the two officer however it still stands for me that on October I was unjustly tased, hand cuffed, dragged, thrown into the front seat of a police car, detained with informing me as to what crime I had committed. I was never arrested, giving a summons (until April 2009), offered medical care or read my Miranda rights.

What kind of message does this send when any Law Enforcement officer behave in this manner. I should not be told by the secretary of the Police Chief office to contact the FBI, get a lawyer, sue or even disconnected. If Her behavior is any indication as to why these officers involved in this matter is why my complaint has not being handled in a non prejudice manner I clearly understand but will not accept it.

I don't know if any of you have ever been tased but it hurts like hell, its humiliating, then hand cuffed, drugged and placed in the front seat of a police unit with the cuffs so tight it swells your risks and the prongs still launched withing your back well the episode still today hurts and is painful.

Somebody do something let your officers no this is not tolerated not in with any US Law Enforcement Agency.

This destroys public faith it does not build it.

this comment is to Amelda and Patrice, turn these problems over to Jesus, he says, "Lay all your burdens at his feet",and also "Let not your heart be troubled for I have overcame the world" let him have these problems, pray for your children, the officers that mishandled you, and for the Lord to take over the situation, STAND STILL
