Post Script

As a postscript and since I wield the sword-arm here, mention MUST be made of Grammy winner Irma Thomas stepping up to the plate to help Friends of the Congo in their efforts to help victims of the war in DRC. When Irma learned that FOC was working on a CD compilation of songs by women singer/songwriters she immediately came on board saying, “Just tell me what you need,” and ended up donating a song from her Grammy Album to the women of DRC. That is the spirit of New Orleans and hopefully that spirit will take center stage at both political conventions.
