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.
