Absolutely fabulous interview Errol and really in-depth questions and answers with you and the Captain of Le Krewe d'Etat! How great to realize Le Krewe d'Etat was the first parade ever to have blinking throes! They are historic in many ways too, even being a newer parade rather than an old-line parade. Their humor, with their designs and themes, is truly brilliant! I'd take Friday night's Le Krewe d'Etat over ANY other parade at Mardi Gras! They are really the BEST in my book! Wonderful feature! Keep up the good work!
