After the tongue-up-cheeks post below I thought I'd get serious for a second and tell you that I'm hoping and (yes) praying that both of these Orleananders, Barry Goubler and Russell Desmond (of CAN'T BUY A THRILL "fame", although I've been trying to boost his stature amongst you heathens for years to little if any avail), not to mention any other person in harm's way who's good people, survived the recent hurricane that devastated the gulf area and with flying colors to boot. I know that Desmond is not connected to the internet, but Barry, if you're reading this and can get in touch, please write and tell me you're still in one piece, OK?
Anyway, here's hoping that not only these two proud Sons o' the South are safe and sound after this catastrophe of 19th century proportions, but also that both Dave Lang and Jay Hinman were on their respective holidays right in the heart of Katrina as she set ashore! But we can't wish for everything, can we?
