St. Louis, Mo. – Thousands of people turned out at Forest Park in St. Louis Sunday to protest the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq and to rally support for the safe return of the troops.
They converged on the park in droves with an array of anti-war banners. Courtney McDermott's sign read "Draft the Twins," a reference to President Bush's twin daughters. "I think if he had his own daughters over there that perhaps he would think better about this," she said.
St. Louis, Mo. – St. Louis Archbishop Justin Rigali will have surgery for prostate cancer Monday. The operation was delayed until the archbishop had recovered from a case of the shingles.
Recent tests found cancerous cells in Rigali's prostate gland, so doctors at St. Mary's Health Center will remove it today. Later tests showed no evidence the cancer had spread. A full recovery is expected.
