RIP - R.L. Burnside, blues legend

R.L. Burnside died in a Memphis hospital yesterday. The South has also lost a great blues man.

And now, looking to the south, I am deeply embarrassed to see the horrid conditions thousands of people are left in, all because of mismanagement and what appears to be apathy on the part of our leaders. This is a sad and shameful state of affairs. We are losing much more than a tourist area. We have lost a part of our soul.
