Apparently the St. Louis Area was afflicted with tremendous thunderstorms yesterday. There were ferocious and frequent cracks of lightning. Downpours. Motorists had to pull off to the sides of highways. Bows broke. Down came baby, cradle and all. It was, from what I heard, all quite Wagnerian and Apocalyptic. So, my question is: what St. Louisan in the Eighteenth Century made a pact with Satan? Someone must have. How else can one explain such Götterdämmerung-like weather? The question is who. Inquiring minds want to know, Mr. Robertson.
