They are enabled. But I noticed that any comment I make that mentions the Tour of Missouri and Jay Nixon gets deleted/censored.
Keep letting them know what you think.

Well...Missouri's loss is Colorado's gain. Colorado is in the final stages of planning for a stage race that will take over the ToM's slot in the pro race calender:
That means hundreds of thousands of people will travel to Colorado instead of Missouri and spend millions of dollars on food, gas, restaurants, rental cars, hotels, souveniers, etc...Heck, the economy is SO GOOD, Missouri really didn't need that money, did we, Govenor Nixon?
We'll see how long it takes for them to delete it....

Jeff Wohlt Dan, I hear ya. The state supports the CVBs and Chambers and these are the folks with the prison tour and other events...just FYI. I think what most do not understand is that Mo is not a destination for global visitors. Yes, we do get some, as any state does but Mo is a drive destination and 90% of visitors come from surrounding states. These folks are the bread and butter of the many miliions the state brings in as tax revenues. If MDT slows the advertising in these markets then we are really hurting the revenues. Missouri has so much to offer those folks. Want to really raise hell then tell the Reps and Senators they are breaking a statute by not funding the division. The division should be at 28 million for this budget yet they just take it away....if the division had the funding that it is suppose to have I can assure you the race would have gone on. Believe me...the Governor needs all he can get to keep MO people happy as he may not see another term when it comes times to vote. If he loses then so does the tourism director and many other department heads. One reason I do not agree with appointed positions...tourism was never an appointed position until the last couple. The director was always hired by the tourism commission based on their knowledge of marketing and running a business. MDT lost that and it will continue to become a polictical position...this is never good as most just use it as a platform to help themselves or their leader so they can keep a job.
