The Post-Dispatch Needs a Geography Lesson

From Post-Dispatch

Don't try to click that video from the Post-Dispatch's website (it's a screen capture); instead, ask yourself, what's wrong with that picture?

That's right. The Moonrise Hotel is in St. Louis City, not University City.

I, for one, am happy that the "U City Loop" has become the "Delmar Loop," wherein the city's side is acknowledged. Let's not set the clock back, Post-Dispatch. (Or should I say turn back the tide?)

UPDATE (4:58 p.m.): The Post has changed the video's title to read "Moonrise Hotel opens in the Loop". I guess I wasn't the only one peeved.

That big moon might fall off its perch and roll into the county...

The whole region could use a geography lesson!

I've heard the St. Louis side referred to as "East Loop".
