    This coming Monday, November 15th, at 10 AM, KTRS AM (the BIG 550) is having Charles Schmitz, dean of the University of Missouri, and an advocate of statistically merging the population of the City and the County, as the guest of highly rated McGraw Milhaven to discuss the merger as it can really happen. No politics, just straight talk. Please spread the word and tune in.
