Holiday Spirit

Happy Holidays With Razor Wire

Does anything express the season's joy better than wrapping paper banners hung on a fence topped with barbed and razor wire?

This was too bizarre. The scene is a large vacant lot in the run down industrial area north of the Arch. STL's rich and powerful want to build a new multi-zillion dollar football stadium on the site. The owner of the local team wants to move it to Los Angeles to make buckets more money than he can here. So the local supporters held a rally here, showing support for building the stadium and keeping the team. I got there too late to shoot the rally but this was worth the stop.

Rather odd, but at least the sentiment behind it is good!

Looks like in the end money and greed decide everything. Its unstoppable until its to late.

Be interesting to see who wins Bob, will the team stay in STL or move to richer grounds!

What a strange contrast.

Still laughing at the 'barbed wire' comment, ha!
