The retraining, education, and “STEM shortage” myths are some of the most persistent in our society. Facing them will be unusually painful. Time to bite the bullet anyway.

Q: Is the key to getting back on top over the robots just mumbling “education & retraining” with ever greater conviction? Good for for pointing out that “The key is more education!” is just a slogan not a plan. He’ll take real heat...but he’s on target.

Courthouse: You have 10Min to go to room 145. Do you have harmonicas on you? Me: Yes sir. CH: Please exit the courthouse & put them outside. Me: Where Sir? CH: Anywhere. Me: Where exactly? Is there a locker? CH: Somewhere hard to guess in San Francisco sir. No music.

Booker loved Fess. As do I. Another singular talent. But I don’t see it as close, as much as I love Longhair’s legacy and contributions. I don’t wanna get deep into comparison: both of them left the world immeasurably different from the one they found. So glad they came through.

Longhair contributed a lot of ideas and “vocabulary” as well as soul and compositions. Fess’ version of Big Chief maybe even be my favorite NOLA piano composition (edging out Booker’s “Goodnight Irene” and “Papa was a Rascal”). But Longhair didn’t aspire to Booker’s completeness.

America does not always see its own geniuses. This man was our best New Orleans piano player in my opinion. And if that doesn’t sound like much...consider who else played piano down there. The greatest. James Booker Audio Documentary:

Remind me to tell you the story of your brother Aaron and the lunatic on the street corner. Another time.

Thank you Tamar for this. I’m sorry I missed the man that was your father. Be well. I am truly sorry for your loss. I have one question. Was your father unusually physically brave? I ask because I know your brother to be so.
