There is nothing funny about murder. And yet I write humorous mysteries. Because I think sometimes, the only way to deal with tragedy is to find a way to laugh about it.
Or better yet, to sing about it.
So I was really pleased to see my cousin Donny post this yesterday on facebook.
One of his new songs, Another Murder in New Orleans, co-written with Carl Gustafson, recorded by Dr. John and Bobby Rush, will be debuted at the Patron Party on September 16, an event to benefit the non-profit Crimestoppers organization in New Orleans.
Way to go, Donny.
