Wynton Marsalis comes home to New Orleans..

If you feel a spiritual connection to New Orleans you will want to read this story. It will bring life to your soul! It's about Wynton Marsalis going home to New Orleans with the Lincoln Jazz Center Orchestra. Reading this story brought back memories of that afternoon when I was part of the funeral for Louis Armstrong through the streets of the Big Easy.

Yesterday morning I returned a call to an old associate who shares a Fox Cable News view of the world. As I listened to him argue that America should not "waste money" on rebuilding New Orleans I whispered a silent prayer for patience! Anyone who knows and loves that wonderful city would not want it to be abandoned.

Of course you are entitled to express an opposing view!
