But I'm Gen X - now a veteran of all this we call HR. Southeast Missouri? Kris- Would love to know your opinion on a trend I am seeing as I'm screening HR Director candidates.

HR Capitalist

I'm from Missouri and a St. A great baseballl town and region where veterans want to play to bask in fan support all summer long. Louis pro sports fan. In case you missed it, Cardinal great (pro baseball) Albert Pujols has left the Cardinals at the age of 32 , signing a 10 year deal worth $254 Million with the Los Angeles Angels. The reaction out of St. Louis is disappointment, but with a hat tip toward the realization that matching that offer would have been a suckers play.
