      Sir, thank you for this hub. I have long thought it a shame how the blues are popularly neglected as a form of expression in this country. I blame that on the ignorance of the youthful mind. I guess you have to have felt it to get it.

      In the political arena I disagree with you completely, though I do look forward to the attitude presented in your comments and threads. In the blues it seems we have common ground. I wonder, who are your personal favorite blues musicians?

      Ralph, what a great hub! And the video was absolutely fabulous. It gave me goose pimples. I was nearly in tears watching it and thinking about the humantarian statement it was making.
