ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) - Two big transportation bits are some of the best news St. Louis has seen in a long time.

The first bit is Southwest starting nonstop service from St. Louis to San Francisco. The other bit is  federal funding will help provide a Metrolink stop in the Cortex district.

This makes it all the more likely the next tech giant could start right here in St. Louis. It's also all the more reason to tell your kids to bone up on their computer and math skills.

I'm JB and that's the way it oughta be.
