Consider the idea of Rev. Robert Tabscott, a teacher of African-American history at Webster University and a resident of neighboring Glendale.Tabscott wants Gov.

...
"There's no need to trade blood for blood," Tabscott said.
Tabscott seemed prepared when I said his idea would be misunderstood.
...
"These are the kinds of gestures that will arouse all kinds of (reactions), but it's worth a shot," Tabscott said."It's symbolic, but symbolism is all we have."
Tabscott, who is white, has dedicated much time researching Meacham Park's history and its connection with Kirkwood.He speaks of "two worlds" - an impoverished majority-black neighborhood, annexed 17 years ago by a more affluent majority-white Kirkwood.Tabscott says education and understanding will bring all of Kirkwood together: "If there is an answer; it's engaging the history of our African-American colleagues.Understand the history of blacks in this country, and you'll understand the situation we're in."
I agree with Tabscott but, in the shadow of murder, I doubt the outcome of his approach.
But at least Tabscott has ideas.And unlike me, he won't be standing in front of a crowd tonight with no viable solutions.
