As I look into the mirror, perhaps I'm not the one who should be judging what's ugly and what's not. That's why I'll defer to a new national ranking that declared the ugliest cities in America and one Missouri place is at the top of the list described as "an ugly wasteland".
I was born and raised in Missouri and live there now. Normally I would recommend that anyone and everyone consider making it their home state, too. But, there are some people who really should pay attention to red flags that are a sign that Missouri is not meant for you.
It will forever be remembered as the day when the sky tried to pound Missouri into the ground. The worst hailstorm in history that began in the Kansas City area continued across Missouri until it relented just past St. Louis nearly 23 years ago.
I can't remember the year, but I recall that St. Louis used to be one of the 20 largest cities in America. Not anymore. How much has St. Louis shrunk? 70 cities in America now boast a larger population than the Gateway City.
