And the night that Mayor Washington was elected, I mean the people in Cabrini, it was a major celebration,** it was a major cel--we didn't, we did not go down to the hotel. We stayed right here in our community, we were in the middle of the street all night long, throwing up all the leftover literature and newspapers and anything else that we could find. Finally people just got together, passed the hat, we went and got food, drink and everything. We had a celebration. And, and we wanted it to be that way. And the reason that we did not go down to the hotel because the people were here and we wanted to be with them.
