World Class Resurrection
"Everything's gonna be alright, I think."
Fats Domino, on the prospects of New Orleans after Katrina and the Manmade Flood.
Pictures (above) include (left) Mr. Clio/Dilly and Berto at a Lundi Gras dinner at Tujague's, and (right) Mr. Clio with unidentified friend on St. Charles.
The foam rubber fleur-de-lis made me many friends and stirred nationalistic fervor up and down the Avenue. Approximately 25 strangers asked for and took pictures with me. My only request was that they say "Go Saints!" No one refused.
BIG UPDATE: Pete Fountain is okay and was even in the Quarter this afternoon. See Scout's cool video that includes Pete taking it easy. (Thanks, Oyster.)
