1 hour 46 minutes ago

If he looks like a man who's spent too many hours holed up in a cramped room in front of a computer, it's because that's exactly what he has been doing mixing the band's new, still-untitled album, release date uncertain.

Trudy Busch Valentine wants to be the Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate in Missouri, but two left-leaning political organizers in St. Louis say it is exceedingly difficult to get her to appear live in front of voters.

Like many novices to this particular region of cuisine, I wasn't sure of the differences between Nepalese and Indian food. Even within the countries themselves, there are variations and specialties from region to region. With so much complexity and nuance, it can be intimidating, even a little overwhelming.

If you find yourself on the banks of the Huzzah donning a pair of frayed jorts (homemade, obviously) and hunched over the back end of a canoe trying to push off from the gravely landing, you've already reached peak St. Louis summer. However, as any seasoned sailor of the low seas knows, this quintessential experience can be made or broken based on the refreshments.
