The Missouri state government gets snotty:
A move to take slugger Mark McGwire’s name off of a stretch of Interstate 70 is building momentum in the Missouri Legislature.
A bill renaming the St. Louis section of the highway for its original namesake, Missouri author Mark Twain, passed the Senate unanimously this week and appears to have a good chance in the House.
It’s just poor form to do this now that Mark McGwire is associated with the St. Louis Cardinals again instead of when the stories of his performance enhancing drug use surfaced. Maybe instead of wasting that money painting new signs for the renaming, the legislature should save the taxpayers’ money by just unnaming it and quit putting their stamp on the Interstate highways to suit their whims.
