Civilization progresses in Missouri: Dogs are now permitted in sidewalk cafes.
The so-called "Doggie Dining Bill" was signed into law by Mayor Francis Slay at Forest Park Sunday. The measure does not allow dogs to occupy a chair or sit on the table, and they must remain on a leash. Still, under the table, they are masters of all they survey. Restaurants must post their participation and provide hand sanitizer.
(For a brief time in high school, I lived doglessly adjacent to Forest Park. Via Mirabilis.)
