Ice Cream, You Scream
Today all St. Louisans can experience the pure bliss that is Uber. The way you can is through tasting bliss itself: ice cream. Yes, for today only, you can use your Uber app that you downloaded in a different metropolitan area to request on demand ice cream. Uber does not normally operate in St. Louis because of an inability for our local governments to workout negotiations with our local cab organizations in unions.
I could go on for quite some time about the missed opportunities for the city's economic growth that this type of decision brings about. The bottom line though is this: it's embarrassing. If we are ever to be a city of progressive thought and action to to reflect these modern times, well then we have to behave like it.
Please, if you are a citizen of St. Louis who even slightly enjoys ice cream, has an interest in mobile technology and/or has a desire for this city to prosper order an ice cream.
