Ducks hand Blues rare home loss

What was supposed to be a clash of Western Conference giants was quickly squashed by the Anaheim Ducks. Ryan Getzlaf extended his point streak to 13 games with a goal and an assist, and the Ducks handed the St. Louis Blues their second regulation loss at home with a 5-2 victory Saturday at Scottrade Center. The Ducks (20-7-5) got goals from Andrew Cogliano, Corey Perry and Getzlaf in the opening 7:29. Perry and Getzlaf scored in a 1:53 span to chase Blues goalie Jaroslav Halak. Nick Bonino and Cogliano had a goal and an assist, and rookie Frederik Andersen stopped 26 shots to improve to 8-1-0. The Ducks, who defeated the Chicago Blackhawks 3-2 in a shootout Friday, are 5-1-2 in their past eight games.

It came as a shock to a lot of people to find out that the contract for the Union license office, which has been operated by the Union Chamber of Commerce since the 1970's, was being turned over to a for-profit company based out of Jefferson City.

What happened? It's a classic case of two all-too-common phenomena in the world of government--unintended consequences and the revolving door.
