    I picked up the special issue of B&W Magazine the other night at my local book store. It wasn't until today that I had a chance to thumb through it. On page 176 I saw a familiar image. When I looked to see who made it Sam's Name was at the top. Wow, how great it is to see Sam get the attention and Recognition he so deserves.

    Congratulations Sam and a job well done.

    If London had been affected like New Orleans, Sam would have an exhibition at the outdoor gallery on London's South Bank.

    In the U.K. we cannot conceive of the devastation but it drove the BBC's US correspondent to almost lose his temper when he told a police representative that he had seen the same body floating in the water for almost two weeks without any attempt to remove the body
