We are headed to St. Louis for a few days to visit my brother, sister-in-law and nephew, so posts will be light, if at all, through next Monday. In the meantime, scroll down, read the reviews of Obama's historic speech, watch it again, contemplate those words and, if all else fails, peruse the Freedom Road archives if you get bored. There's lots of good stuff in there!
In the meantime, here is a classic St. Louis-related clip for your viewing pleasure:
Bessie Smith in "St. Louis Blues." Watch it all the way through, the band really gets going at about the 4 minute mark and keep an eye out for the dancing waiter at 4:30!
