A bridge name to satisfy both sides

May 2, 2013 

Recently I awoke early and did some thinking.

Here is a good compromise for the current conflict between Illinois and Missouri over naming the new Mississippi River bridge.

Name the bridge the Stan Musial Veterans Bridge. I think most veterans would like this. I do. I am a Korean War vet from 60 years ago.

Get in touch with the leaders in both states if you agree.
