We can hardly get our breath, taxed and schooled and preached to death. Tell me how can a poor man stand such times and live? - Blind Alfred Reed, 1929

There's a story at the Houston Press site about the unveiling of the historical marker for Lightnin' Hopkins.

Thanks for the note nd the links.  I notrice one of the photographs is captioned "Houston singer Diunna Greenleaf and her band Blue Mercy performed Robert Johnson's "If I Had Possession Over Judgement Day," which evolved into the blues standard "Rollin' and Tumblin'." "
