"I was sayin let me out of here before I was

It's fascinatin to observe what the mirror does
But when I dine it's for the wall that I set a place"

I live near Tower Grove Park, the lungs of South City. Because of its presence, many feel more enlightened. What once was supposed to be closed off from the rest of the city is now a welcome reprieve from the traffic surrounding it.

Well, that's just sounds ridiculous, doesn't it?
It can't ALL be here. But perhaps, we can manage mention of most and you can no longer claim ignorance as an excuse. ...and you might do the same for me, Buckaroo!
