Trust the people and put the Cardinals' new ballyard up for a vote. Sell it on your conviction that it's a do-or-die issue for St. Louis. Ditch all that Ballpark Village crap and its empty promise of urban renewal.
Show some independence from the Money Power that has you slavishly yapping about the virtues of tired white-elephant formulas and talk to the 10th Street Loft Taliban and other New Urbanism acolytes. Live up to your promises and take the loftanistas seriously.
And leave the thugball to Rudy, Richie, Eddie and them.
