Abstract: I review some of the old difficulties in determining the spiral structure of the Galaxy using kinematic distances, and present some of the new results on the stellar spiral structure of the Galaxy which do not suffer from the same systematic difficulties. I conclude the discussion with something borrowed (spiral structure studies in other galaxies) and discuss how it relates to something blue (massive star formation).
