A Helluva Town(s)…

Special thanks to the Chicago Public Library whose 2008 list of the Best of the Best included Knuffle Bunny Too, My Friend is Sad!, and Today I Will Fly!

(Little known Mo-trivia: while New Orleans is my hometown, I was actually born in the Chicago suburb of Des Plaines)

Brooklyn-wise, I spent last evening at the “State of the Borough Address”, where Knuffle Bunny Too and I were ‘recognized’. I gotta say, the State of the Borough totally out-rocks the State of the Union—this thing had double dutch jumpers, Streb dancers, Gov. Eliot Spitzer, child/punk Park Slope band Care Bears on Fire, and Brooklyn’s biggest performer Borough President Marty Markowitz.

A surreal time was had by all.
