Thank you Patty, it's

Thank you Patty, it's wonderful to get the story behind a great photo. Francis, too bad you don't get "the point," but maybe if you keep reading Geist and other publications dedicated to art and culture --with an open mind-- you'll start to understand why the intersection of narrative and photography is so important and interesting. Good luck to you!

I was there during those days

I was there during those days and nights at the Lamplighter. Tom and Murphy were two of the funniest people I've met and really nice guys. I wonder what happened to them and the rest.

It can be a way to release

It can be a way to release racial tensions. Making it real for people, noticing the small points that are relevant. The Point of View of a "tough greasy guy" is about the person's character or personality, no their stereotypical "attributes".
