Two bridge names are better than one

May 20, 2013 

After reading yet another news article about naming the new bridge, I just had to sound off. The state legislature and Congress need to focus on more important topics than naming a bridge. Get your priorities straight, people.

So, I will name the bridge. It will be the Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge -- or in the middle of the bridge heading into Missouri, a sign with Stan Musial Bridge and on the other side heading into Illinois, a sign with Veterans Memorial Bridge. So now you have it. Done and done.
