Signs Of The Times (Part 3: Summertime Blues)

Shot Of The Day: March 26, 2017

Fish are jumpin’ and the cotton is high
Oh, your daddy’s rich and your ma is good-lookin’
So hush, little baby, don’t you cry

— George Gershwin

Backstory: It struck me as odd that the ‘Commissioner of Health and Mental Hygiene’ would find Uncle Louie unfit to dispense Italian ices.

Is there a cure for Uncle Lou and his Summertime Blues? Time does tell… — TAG
