    I’m completely moved by all you’ve brought to us, Jimmy (forgive me), since our early years in Baton Rouge. You’ve not only created your own path, but you have opened myriad doors for others; offering unique, insightful critiques; all, it seems clear, with the goals of sustaining and loving the craft.
