As it stands now, there are deserted buildings in the area. A 2004 plan to reduce the crime rate in deserted areas of Baltimore stated that worthwhile projects would stimulate positive activity. Baltimore's crime rate has declined significantly according to the thirteenth edition of Morgan Quitno Press' published rankings. Perhaps an initiative like the one the university is proposing will do the same for St. Louis.
The sports arena also has the capability to stimulate the economy. According to an October 29 report on National Public Radio, the new Busch Stadium beautified a downtown St. Louis area that was once an eyesore and a tragedy. Now the area has grown economically with 50 new businesses opening. The growth provides more jobs and stimulates the environment to promote tourism.
The dissidents need to look beyond their personal issues and think about midtown St. Louis as a whole. I am glad to see that the majority of the residents and outside supporters are in favor of the project. My hopes are that SLU will prevail and do something positive for the Grand Center area.

No good result could come of such material without slanting the article humorously. Lacking this, readers could get bored. Even the people taking part in the expeditions got bored.
