Are you in New Orleans?

Check this out -- among my wanderings around New Orleans looking at people's trash, I was especially drawn to vinyl recordings. The treasure I found was a 78 recording of the Fortier fight song. I live across the street from Fortier, so I've heard a lot of stories about the pride people had for the school back in the day (that's a longer discussion). The incredible thing is that someone, obviously, held on to that 78 for decades, only to throw it on a heap of moldy trash after Hurricane Katrina. It has a long crack in it, but it still played on my 78 player.

I'll be damned if I don't resurrect that thing from the dead.

I'll post an mp3 one of these days soon.

First, thanks for the x-link to Wet Bank Guide. Second, Lusher had figured prominently in my plans to move back to NOLA. I think my daughter can make BF (and NOCCA, fingers crossed). But I worry about what I'm going to do with my own 10 year old son. I don't want to have to (and I'm not sure I can afford a house in NOLA+tuition). Hell, it would be swell to send him to CBS in the park where I went, or for my daughter to be third generation Dominican girl, but it ain't likely.
