Your friendly editor is sharing a little bit about how his mother inspired him and we're asking you to do the same.
Today's the day we carve out in the greeting card culture to salute the Moms in the world. There should be more than one day for this kind of thing. If you'll pardon the indulgence, I'd like to brag a little bit about my Mom. I'm pretty sure that being Mary Ann Palermo's son is one of the reasons I ended up in journalism. A Boston University grad school degree in the subject led to work in marketing in New York City at what was Time-Life back then. I can definitely see where the "not afraid to ask questions" nature of being a reporter came from her. She's a lifelong Boston Red Sox fan--at least her love of baseball rubbed off on me, if not love for the Sox (I've been a Yankees fan before adopting the Cardinals about 20 years ago). …
The Marketplace Fairness Act was approved in the U.S. Senate, and is headed for the Republican-controlled U.S. House of Representatives. The bill would require merchants to collect sales taxes on online purchases.
It's called the "Marketplace Fairness Act" and supporters say it levels the playing field between online retailers and brick-and-mortar stores by requiring online merchants to pay sales taxes to the states, counties and localities where they have done business. Opponents include anti-tax activists and retailers who say it will be overly burdensome—in fact, nearly impossible, they say, to keep track of the tax rates and tax requirements for the myriad of taxing agencies where they may be doing business. The Marketplace Fairness Act passed the U.S. Senate 69-27 on Monday. Next up, the legislation goes to the GOP-led House. President Barack Obama has previously said he supports the bill. Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill, a Democrat, voted for …

Find movie reviews written by Patch blogger Mark Glass and showtimes for theaters in the St. Louis-area, including Creve Coeur, Olivette, Ladue and Frontenac courtesy of Moviefone.
Are you a movie buff? Or maybe you just enjoy the occasional dinner and a movie date? Either way, Patch would be thrilled to have you on board as a movie blogger! It's free, quick and easy to do so! All you have to do is shoot a quick email to Brian Feldt at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Great Gatsby Patch Blogger Mark Glass: **½ This latest screen version of the classic novel is a mixed bag of assets and flaws. Director and co-writer Baz Lurhrmann ambitiously tries for a 3-D spectacle with several lavish party scenes that Busby Berkeley would have envied. He inserts bits of anachronistically modern music into this 1922 setting. That worked beautifully in his Moulin Rouge, and hilariously in the opening joust of A Knight’s Tale, but feels overly…

Creve Coeur Mayor Barry Glantz writes about challenges moving forward after April's elections and a way to get involved with the city in June.
The following is republished with permission from the city of Creve Coeur's May newsletter. Congratulations to newly elected City Council representatives Cynthia Kramer (Ward 1) and Dr. Ellen Lawrence (Ward 2), and re-elected representatives Charlotte D’Alfonso (Ward 3) and Dr. Scott Saunders (Ward 4); I share the conﬁdence expressed by the voters and look forward to working with the entire City Council! Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” A year ago (in my ﬁrst mayoral column), I talked about the shoes I had to ﬁll, and those that I had worn out. I have learned so much, including that the privilege of being mayor is not a destination, but rather an…
