I plan to be in the 2008 AmerenUE St. Louis Thanksgiving Day Parade tomorrow morning. I confidently — and gladly expect to be upstaged by Major Robert Behnken, the Wash U alum astronaut, and nine giant helium balloons. Such is the nature of being an earth-bound mayor. The parade, though, is always great family fun. I hope you will join me along its downtown route about 8:45 am.
