Save The Tour of Missouri petition

I think this petition was in the double digits when I signed it. Here we are a few days later and it's at 1680.
Really, we can do better than that. We really have to, don't we?
Click it and show your support.
Please. It can't hurt.

Note: I'm not addressing E-Lee here, just elaborating on a very good point.
This was high on my list of reasons for bumping the thread and lending support to it. I didn't have to do more than verify my email address to 'sign' it. To me that seemed reasonable way to show that the collected 'signatures' were real enough.
and nothing at all (dangerous or otherwise) has happened as a result.
I say do what you can do. It's an opportunity to show support. It's free. It's harmless. Yes, it may mean nothing in the end. But what if it does?

I agree. Viewing one stage on VS would be enough, in my opinion, to go forth with the funding. The fantastic scenery, comments about local culture, and massive amount of viewers should make this an easy decision.
It's a multi day commercial for the beauty that is our state.

Last year, Versus did half-hour recap shows after each day's stage. Universal Sports did live streaming video, along with other outlets, including the ToM website. Fox Sports Midwest and Fox Sports Kansas City also aired the recap shows that appeared on Versus.
If I remember correctly, the Universal Sports broadcast had short segments about some of the communities or attractions along the stage routes.

It almost made me sick to watch the Tour of California yesterday afternoon. I was furious. How could the state of Missouri politicians shut down a spectacular event like this? This has all been very disappointing.
