The National Black Caucus of State Legislators, whose annual meeting was just concluded this past weekend at The Peabody, saw many serious political and governmental issues addressed during the four days of meeting in Memphis. It also witnessed some light moment. Here are two:
—Addressing the annual meeting of the National Black Caucus of State Legislators in Memphis, Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN9) finds that the expected next speaker, Secretary of Labor Thomas Perez, is absent, then, via the assumed alter ego of the late former U.S. Secretary of State Alexander Haig, improvises on his discovery.
—State Rep. Joe Towns (D-Memphis), addressing the final or plenary session of the conference on Saturday, could not resist morphing into one of his favorite alter egos — the late music legend Louis Armstrong.
