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.

Comments:
ABSOLUTELY!
 
Amen.
 
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!
Bob
