Harry Connick, Jr.'s Wisdom
If one is poor, must one be more criminal than others? Is criminality thereby excused? Does this follow logically? And if one is hopelessly poor, would the best thing to steal be a TV? Think also of the sadly disordered souls who not only resort to violence and theft during a crisis--instead of helping their fellow sufferers--but chose to steal entertainment devices (thus further stupefying themselves).
Mr. Connick is considered a jazz singer. Boycott his recordings from now on. He is a disgrace to that superb music.
New Orleans and the surrounding areas need help at many, many levels--through financial support, through cultural and spiritual renewal, and more. This damaged land does not deserve further debasement through egregiously idiotic comments.
