My Favorite St. Louis Website!

Built St. Louis , a website created and maintained by Rob Powers, is the place I began my journey back home. Its detailed, documented pieces (with pictures) brought back so many memories about growing up in the Gateway City, yes including trips to the top of the Arch, and breezy club nights on Laclede's Landing at Mike Talayna's and The Brass Rail. There are also links to some more very interesting sites about St. Louis. The site covers the demolition of architectural landmarks, the city's ever changing landscapes, and the unique composition of St. Louis neighborhoods. This site beautifully documents St. Louis' past and present from the POV of its architecture and cityscapes, and preserves it forever unlike any other source I've seen.

Hey Persistence,

I actually do consider myself a post colonial writer, because colonialism and imperialism are two things we are still trying to get over and the biggest mistake that we keep making is assuming that we are already over it. Post colonial fiction is tolerable when it comes in an acceptable shape. I wrote about this before, how the world likes immigrant novels or coloured novels written by white people. Sure there are exceptions, Chimamanda Adichie is a striking one but the rule holds.
