Am trying again as I messed up the first time. Because I am not a good writer and cannot for sure mention the organizations, activities and people who have carried on since Jerry Garcia passed I cannot respond to this columnist with any confidence .
His name is Mike McHugh and he contributes to the local paper "Daily News" from Jacksonville, North Carolina. Jacksonville is a military town with a redneck attitude so he gives opinions reflecting this fact. Here is the address to the article:
He really struck a nerve with me by suggesting that Deadheads were left with nothing to do after Jerry Garcia died. That "the “Deadheads’ lost when their idol died." In other words it all just stopped.
I'm hoping this passes round enough so folks can email him a "Box of Rain." and "show him the light." His email at the paper is: firstname.lastname@example.org
