Yet their silence is deafening. I would argue that many southeast Missouri Democrats hold nothing in common with the protesters who seek recognition through violence.

Yes, Iím a concerned citizen. And apparently there are no enforcement rules for property other than the plantational locations in the north end of town. 305 Missouri thereís been two cars sitting there for two months and not one with no license plates. They havenít run in over a month and a half. The city has been called about them. The dealer plates are not dealer plates. The drive out tags on that one, I donít understand how he got that when a carís not left. So please print this. Thank you.
