Good for you for getting Tab Benoit.  Not only is he a smoking guitarist 
and performer, but he is one of the more knowledgeable folks about South 
Louisiana and the environment.  Thanks also for keeping South Louisiana 
on the radar.  Things here are fine and not fine at the same time, and 
there are many institutions to blame for what happened here and 
continues to happen.  However, two of those "institutions" that are not 
to blame are jazz radio and the citizens of the United States, both of 
whom have stepped up with donations and volunteer efforts.
