To The Editor:

I’ve been reading about the various bets being made over the Cardinals and Red Sox World Series, including that between the states’ two governors and the one between a St. Louis city alderwoman and one of her Boston equals.

After reflecting on it, if the Cardinals win the World Series, I believe Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon should send a complimentary case of St. Louis-produced Tums to Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick.

It would be especially fitting, as the stomach settlers are made a block over from Busch Stadium.
