Not that Cleveland

Dear All:

Greetings from Cleveland...Mississippi. I'm attending a seminar here dedicated to a history of the blues - and blues culture - in the Delta Region. I hope to report throughout the week.

The first bit to note: It's 100 degrees. And humid.

More soon.


  1. Welcome to the Deep South. Just wait until August.

    Enjoy your conference.

  2. To say "humid" and "Mississippi" in the same breath demonstrates a redundancy that only a northerner would utter. So, let me build upon Hedgie by saying in my best southern store clerk voice, "Trust me, sweetie, it ain't hot yet, It's just fixin' to get real hot."
