Redux: Poet David Blair's Performance at the Allied Media Conference

One of the most amazing performances I saw all year was poet David Blair's opening at the Allied Media Conference in Detroit, Michigan on July 17, 2009. His social observations and commentary concluded with a heart-felt tribute to Michael Jackson was very powerful. My Youtube posting of the performance didn't give it complete justice because that video web site sets a 10 minute time limit on postings. Below is my complete recording, which is just over 13 minutes long. I hope you take a moment during this busy holiday season to watch and listen.
