They're The Colors Of The Swedish Flag, Too, But Are There Jalapeños In Sweden?

A principal sponsor of the St. Louis Hispanic Festival, Cerveza Corona, right next to the stage where the salsa and mariachi bands are working it out (more about which later).

The white building in the background was for decades the headquarters of the Missouri Pacific Railroad and, after a merger, a principal office of the Union Pacific. Like so many old commercial buildings downtown, it is being converted into upscale apartments. The new development, which looks beautiful, has the idiotic name of Park Pacific. Yes, it's on a small park but the Pacific Ocean is, oh, 2,000 miles (3.200 km) to the west. Why don't they call it the Park Mississippi? The river is 10 or 15 minutes walk away.
