St. Louis is back on top, but it's not a list city residents are proud to headline.  For the first time since 2004, St. Louis again tops CQ Press' crime ranking list, earning our fair city the unwanted title of "Most Dangerous."  CQ Press uses publicly available FBI crime data to make its list, but how crime data gets reported and collected across the nation, is a complicated issue.  We tried to break it down a bit on today's St. Louis on the Air.

Missouri lawmakers have been pre-filing bills this week in preparation for the legislative session that begins next month. Here's the lowdown on these early ventures:

One of the young men, a 16-year-old, was treated for minor wounds before being taken to the Juvenile Building. A 23-year-old man was arrested while police were investigating the robberies.
The incident began around 10:50 Wednesday night, when two men held up a driver attempting to make a pizza delivery in the 4600 block of Michigan. They escaped in a getaway car parked in a nearby alley and driven by a third suspect.

Republican congressional candidate Ed Martin condemned late Tuesday the suspected arson attack on the campaign headquarters of U.S. Rep. Russ Carnahan, D-St. Louis.

Even before the polls close today, state Auditor Susan Montee -- a Democrat with no serious primary opposition -- will be on the streets with St. Louis Police Chief Dan Isom and Mayor Francis Slay to visit "National Night Out" events around the city to highlight anti-crime and anti-drug efforts.
