I. E. Millstone - St. Louis Loses a Legend

For those of you who haven't heard, I.E. Millstone went missing a few days ago, coinciding with reports that an elderly gentleman was seen jumping off of the Daniel Boone Bridge.

Millstone, after whom the local joint Federation and JCC campus are named, was the builder behind Busch Stadium, and highway 64-40 through downtown.

At 102, Millstone was a beloved philanthropist and was pretty with it, by all accounts.

So why does no one seem to have a clue what happened?

STL Today's story here seems to indicate a total lack of information.

The story has generated some traction within the web-o-sphere, this report from the River Front Times examines all of the comments that have been posted on stories about his disappearance.

We continue to hope for the best, even as we send our condolences to the family.
