Build a wall

We have read so much bad news from East St. Louis, Washington Park, and other disadvantaged communities near the river. I suggest we adopt the brilliant plan of that genius politician, Donald Trump. Let’s build a “beautiful wall” just a few feet west of Route 157 from I-270 in the north going south to Route 157’s intersection with I-255 in the south. The wall will protect the rest of us from the unfortunate. We can have Oliver Hamilton’s construction company build the wall. And, we can let Mr. Hamilton pay for it.
