“Yes I think it can be very easily done”…

Ask people around St. Louis what Highway 61 means, and you’ll get a few different ideas (if not just puzzled looks):

1.)  Depending on the part of town, some people in St. Louis will coreectly identify a local stretch of US Route 61 on what could be any number of highways and interstates (you’ll really have to check the signs), including Lemay Ferry, Lindbergh/Kirkwood, and a large thrust of highway 40/I-64.  consult google maps for further such misadventures.

2.) A certain tradition of college graduates and students will immediately refer to the popular Bob Dylan record “Highway 61 Revisited“, which has seemingly been passed from generation to generation of students.  This seminal work of the influencial musician was also his most popular, and thusly still popular in circles all around town.

3.)  Just like you’ll get if you ask someone in St Louis for any directions, they’ll offer directions to the route even if they don’t have the least clue where to go…(seriously, try this)

Welcome to Highway61.com (domain pending), your online crossroads between St. Louis’ cultural heritage and what otherwise might be called youth culture.  Formed using the remnants of WebsterBloggers.com, this site expands upon that legacy to offer a unique take on the happenings in St. Louis, Missouri, USA, Earth.  That being said, you might expect to find any matter of concert reviews, local events, pictures, interviews, and general drunken revelry here (see also: this initial post).  In the meantime, please look forward to posts almost totally unlike this rather akward first post (spelling errors, warts, and all).

So if you’re still wondering like our friend Abe where this thing should be done, God said down on Highway 61.
