If I had a nickel for every Popeye cartoon I watched when I was a kid, I'd be a rich man now. I'm not a rich man sadly, however I have learned that both Popeye and Olive Oyl are buried in Chester, Illinois.
I used to go to Six Flags in St. Louis practically every year growing up in the 1970's and 80's and cannot remember this coaster at all. It's a coaster that opened at Six Flags in St. Louis and only lasted a year because of a tragedy.

This has been a sad reality many families have faced as a side effect of the ongoing pandemic. A Missouri family had been separated from their sister for nearly 2 years due to travel restrictions. This is their happy reunion that happened in Branson recently.

It can happen that quickly. A wild dashcam video shows a violent collision in the Midwest where a red-light runner hits another car in the side sending it airborne barely missing a pedestrian in the crosswalk. Miraculously, there were no injuries.
Thanks to security and doorbell cameras, we're seeing some crazy things these days. That's exactly what happened when a home's security cam in Cass County, Missouri captured a police chase of a guy who stole a truck and it continued through a family's backyard.
