    Did they lose a lot of people through the buyouts?

    Is the ability to "easily navigate our coverage area" some kind of code for "we want a local guy 'cause the pay stinks and we're not paying relocation"?

    It might also be code for you might have a pretty big f-ing distance to get between a couple of your schools, depending on how they sort the beats.
    Traffic in St. Louis -- aside from the random power outage that affects 500k people -- isn't bad. There are some relatively good places to live, and some amazing places to spend a night out.
