Re: [RedHotJazz] Be careful for Bush 1984 type thought police
- This is all getting pretty off topic, but I'd advise my fellow
American's to stand up to these bullies and speak the truth as you see
it, but as Louis Armstrong said, "If ya ain't got it in ya, ya can't
blow it out".
BUT this is a jazz discussion group as we should respect that people who
subscribe to this list want to talk about old jazz and not politics.
Sometimes politics will affect our beloved jazz and I think that
Andrew's post was acceptable because government policies and decisions
about what to spend our tax dollars on may have contributed to the
flooding of the birthplace of jazz. See
for more on this issue.
Okay, back to the beloved jazz. Here's Sippie Wallace singing about the
Mississippi River flood of 1927:
Flood Water Blues
Amazing song, huh? It sounds like it could have been written today.
