For H.P.

The guiding light of 40 years of journalism has flickered out.
The professor of great wisdom and a vast font of knowledge.
Rest in Peace Howard Perkins.

H.P. hardly cared to have his photo made, so I have chosen something to represent him.
He was a product of Southeast Texas rearing and LSU college studies.
He was a legend in his own time among his students, and while he wouldn't brag
about it anymore, it was common knowledge that when he was living in New Orleans
was counted as one of Tennesse Williams cohorts.
