As you know, Louisiana has been
ravaged by Hurricane Katrina and Rita. These catastrophes have changed our lives

affected particularly in southeast and southwest Louisiana. The rebuilding process will be a
long and tedious one and our thoughts and prayers go to each and every person

I want to thank you, our loyal
subscribers and readers, for your patience. You have probably noticed that in
some cases Tiger Rag takes longer to be delivered. This is a

delivery times should be normalized.
Thank you for your
continued support of Tiger Rag.
