The damage shown here is superficial -- it was inflicted soley for the purpose
of nullifying a pending court order to halt demolition. After this initial middle-of-the-night work, the
site sat idle for a good two weeks. With the building so heavily damaged, the order
became a moot point, and the establishment in St. Louis cleverly managed to drive the city another step forward
on the road to mediocrity.
