Go ahead. Ask what kind of a goofball would put a picture like this on his website. Maybe somebody who’s written so much about it that the Arch comes out of his head? That would make for some kind of book, one that you ought to buy and have me sign.
You’ll get your first chance to do that at the launch party for my book, The Making of an Icon: The Dreamers, The Schemers, and The Hard Hats Who Built The Gateway Arch from 2-5 p.m. Sunday, June 24, at the Royale, 3132 S. Kingshighway Blvd. Be careful, though. After you read it, you may know so much about the Gateway Arch that it’ll come out of your head.
