Citizen of the Week
This week's COW is the organizer of the 2009 ES Blues Weekend, Charles "Rags" Ragsdell, II -- sorta'. Rags got wind of his nomination and called the Citizen to modestly point out that the real kudos for this year's great festival belong to, in his words, "All of the volunteers, sponsors and artists who made the 2009 Eureka Springs Blues Weekend an outstanding success!" Rags' nominator credited him, and by his humble extension, the "volunteers, sponsors and artists" for the "high quality of the Weekend's organization, promotion, scheduling and the outstanding quality of its musicians." How refreshing when the leader of the band is comfortable taking his bow from the wings.
