My Uncle Pleasant Calhoun (real name) live almost his entire life in the French Quarter of New Orleans. I remember going to his funeral thinking (damn this is just one big party) and it was, because they do it right down there. We should weep when their born and rejoice when they die. My Uncle was larger than life persona to me when I was a kid, merchant marine, owned a liquor store, was robbed and stabbed, two years after that incident , he saw the perp who stabbed him standing at a bus stop, he stopped, took out his knife walked up behind the man and shanked him in the lower back, took him down and held him till the law arrived. As I said LARGER THAN LIFE.
