A last picture from the Annie Malone Parade. Tomorrow we turn to Memorial Day weekend events, starting with the Bluesweek festival.
This young man was riding in the back of a pickup truck. The speakers were blasting an electronic rhythm track. He chanted "three - one - four - THREE - ONE - FOUR" over and over again. This may have puzzled out-of-towners and numerologists but it's just the local telephone area code.
I thought I understood the meaning of "dopest" in this context but to be sure I checked The Online Slang Dictionary. Just the latest kid variation on very good or cool. "Da Lou" is a nickname for the city for those under thirty. "The Lou" is the usage for the rest of us geezers.
