Like many of you, Kim Slay and I are celebrating with our family today. The Slay traditions have long included lots of people, a shared meal, a movie or two, some music, and stern words for the dogs.
While most of us celebrate, a handful of public employees ' City police officers, firefighters, medical personnel, and others - have deferred their own holiday to make sure ours safe. Thank them, if you see them.
Have a happy day, St. Louis.
