What's a city gotta do to catch a break these days? 


If you didn't find exactly what you wanted under the Chrisma-Hannu-Kwanz-Festi-Solsti-Non-Denominational-Winter-Holiday tree last weekend, well, The New Yorker magazine can tell you why: Santa, well, just doesn't feel too comfortable touching down in certain parts of St. Louis and its surrounding suburbs.
