Congress Settles Bridge Dispute
ST. LOUIS, MO — Missouri and Illinois lawmakers couldn't agree on what to name a new river bridge at St. Louis, so Congress is moving ahead to settle the divide.
The U.S. House approved a compromise Tuesday that would name the span the Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge.
Missouri lawmakers had sought to name it after Musial, the late Cardinals baseball great. Their Illinois counterparts had wanted to name it after military veterans.
The resolution now heads to the U.S. Senate.
What about the guy who DIED while working on the bridge? Nothing was said about him on ANY broadcasts in ST. Louis. pathetic. Stan Musial was NOT a god.
