Harold Miller is justifiably critical of city sloganeering, particularly since St. Louis has just come up with a real clunker. But St. Louis does have a nice new, welcoming website at, and a brand new marketing campaign that's running in national media. If you go to, well, you'll be disappointed.

Of course, St. Louis isn't one of Kiplinger's 10 "smartest places to live," but it does have a winning baseball team, Ted Drewes, and the Gateway Arch.

Of course, where did the steel for the arch come from . . . ?
