STILL Not Stuck on Stupid

General Russell Honore was the speaker Sunday for NPR's "This I Believe" segment.
He tells a good story and still serves as a witness to truth and decency.
I should note that General Honore will be in New Orleans in May to receive an honorary degree from Loyola University New Orleans. Fittingly, that will take place in the Louisiana Superdome.

Hi there,

I just wanted to tell you about my book which has just come out Finn McCool's Football Club - The Birth, Death, and Resurrection of a Pub Soccer Team in the City of the Dead.

It deals with an Irish bar in Mid-City and the lives of the regulars before, during, and after Katrina.

As someone who blogs on life in New Orleans, I thought you may be interested in how a "foreign" local interprets what goes on in the city.

Last week the Times Picayune carried an article on the book:

Thanks for your time!
