Late Night Conversations

New Orleans, Louisianna
National Convention July 12-15, 2001

One of those great moments. After the regular Q&A session, Franz talks with those who come up to chat informally. After speaking with one distinguished gentlemen, Franz thanks him and asks his name. "I'm Ali Bongo," the man replies.
Franz is stunned. "Ali B-! You're Ali Bongo?? Omigod, I didn't recognize you without the fez!"
He turns to the group nearby. "This is Ali Bongo! I'm talking to Ali Bongo! Somebody get a picture!"

It's nice to know that a magic International Superstar still has heroes.
