You're Never Safe From Hurricanes

Hurricane Katrina drove Bluesman Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown from Slidell, Louisiana, to his childhood hometown of Orange, Texas, where he died in 2005.

Now, another hurricane has disturbed his rest.

The 1982 Grammy Award winner's casket was one of dozens belched up by the ground when gulf and rain waters from Hurricane Ike flooded Hollywood Cemetery, an all-black burial ground on the west side of this city on the Sabine River. [Link]

Hi, Chris,
We gave you the award, too! (I was trying not to repeat, but Janet must be faster than me.)
