Missouri senate votes to rename Mark McGwire Highway

"A stretch of Interstate 70 in St. Louis was designated the Mark McGwire Highway in 1999,
  • one year after the Cardinals slugger hit a then-record 70 home runs.

But McGwire has now admitted he used steroids,

to rename the section of interstate the Mark Twain Highway. The measure now goes to the House."...

  • One senator "...says it might be wise to name roads only for the deceased, because they can't do
  • something worth changing the name over one day."...

AP report, 3/2/10, "Missouri Senate votes to rename Mark McGwire Highway in St. Louis"

  • Tightly coordinated public relations efforts reportedly were behind every detail of McGwire's so-called confession. McGwire could have made his confession in a different way or not timed with a new job, but chose not to. ed.
