40 years ago today...
The year was 1965. The Beatles topped the charts. President Lyndon Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act. The first commercial satellite was launched. And, St. Louis held its breath as the final section of the Gateway Arch was put into place. MoreNot being a native to St. Louis, I hate being asked what people should see while they're here. I really don't have many suggestions, but one of my regular ones is the Arch and the Museum of Westward Expansion, which is underneath it.
