St. Louis County Executive Steve Stenger issues statement on Clayton protest

“In advance of the planned protest later this afternoon in Clayton, I have met with County Police Chief Jon Belmar and his staff. They have a plan in place that is designed to protect the public, the businesses of Clayton and any demonstrators planning to gather here in order to lawfully exercise their right of free speech.

Since Friday, thousands of our fellow citizens have assembled throughout the area to protest in the name of social justice. In spite of the intense emotions that motivated protesters to march on our streets, parks and business districts, the vast majority have done so peacefully and in compliance with the law. I want to express my appreciation and respect for the manner in which they have conducted themselves.

However, as we saw on some nights, it only takes a small, hostile group to hijack a peaceful protest and cause injury and damage. I also want to address a question that has generated a great deal of controversy in recent days. That question is: Whose streets?

On behalf of the one million residents of St. Louis County, I can answer that question: the streets belong to those who respect each other and the law. They belong to those who travel them in the course of their daily lives.

And they belong to those who wish to exercise their rights as Americans to speak their minds and to protest in a lawful manner. As to those who would ignore the law, who would violate the rights of their fellow citizens and wreak senseless harm and havoc, I want to send a clear message: these are not YOUR streets. And they never will be.”

  17. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  18. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  20. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  21. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  23. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  24. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  26. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  29. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  33. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  40. I have actually been looking for blog sites where blog owner covers penis enlargement or at the very least looks into the topic of penis enhancement with an independent and severe voice. What are the leading blog sites of this type?.

  41. I simply desired to say thanks once again. I’m not certain the things I might have carried out in the absence of the type of concepts discussed by you over that situation. This has been a horrifying circumstance for me, but being able to see this expert way you solved that forced me to cry over joy. Extremely happy for this support and then believe you realize what a powerful job your are putting in teaching others with the aid of your blog. I am sure you have never got to know all of us.

  42. The the next occasion I just read a blog, Hopefully that this doesnt disappoint me up to this. I am talking about, It was my method to read, but I really thought youd have something interesting to express. All I hear can be a number of whining about something that you could fix should you werent too busy looking for attention.
