Bob Darden Drives and Talks Waco

I love love love this video by the Dallas Morning News, showing my friend and writing hero Bob Darden driving around Waco and talking about its history:

The surprising thing is what goes unsaid: in 100 or 200 or 300 years, what will be most significant about Waco won't be football or Ken Starr or a TV show about houses. It will be the fact that it was there that Bob Darden saved the legacy of black gospel music, a purely American art form that has influenced music around the world.

You're very kind, Mark. The actual article by the Morning News (which includes intriguing quotes from Sheriff McNamara and RGIII -- of course) is fairly even-handed, compared to some of the articles on Waco in the past week in other papers!
I know a LOT of folks in Waco that wish the Oslers were still here!
