18 is a spiritual number in Judaism and many Jews give gifts in multiples of 18.  On May 18, Charlie O’Gorman of the Central West End turned 18.  He was born at 6:18 p.m. on May 18, 2000.  Note that that would be at 18:18 in military time.  Last Friday, after his parents alerted the crew at Southwest Airlines on their flight to Washington D.C., the birthday boy received 18 packets of peanuts.

Bob Costas is coming back to St. Louis for Bob Costas Night at Busch Stadium on June 25 when the Cardinals play the Indians.  Yes, there will be a Bob Costas bobblehead.  The next morning, Bob will join me at 9:00 a.m. on KMOX’s “Charlie Brennan Show.”

Almost all copies of my book “Amazing St. Louis: 25 Years of Great Tales and Curiosities” burned in a warehouse fire in 2017.  However, Greg Myre, National Security Correspondent for NPR, emailed me to say he bought a copy at the airport.  Greg grew up here and attended St. Louis Community College before transferring to Yale (not a misprint).  He is married to the lovely and brilliant Jennifer Griffin, national security correspondent for FOX News (again, not a misprint).

Can a trip to the theater in St. Louis spawn a great acting career?  Yes.   Laurie Metcalf, Tony nominee for her role in Broadway’s “Three Tall Women,” told the New York Post she was inspired to act while in high school in Evansville, Ill.. “We went to St. Louis to see ‘Godspell.’ We all had terrible seats in the nosebleed section and the actors probably weren’t much older than we were, but they looked like they were having the time of their life. It was energetic, colorful and the music was — how would I describe it? Innovative. Everything about it made me lean forward. I won’t go so far that I thought, ‘Oh, I can do that,’ but I did think, ‘I’d love to do that.’”
