Fats Waller (1904-1943) (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fats_Waller) (09/06/22 07:36:41)
"Razaf was born in Washington, D.C., United States. His birth name was Andriamanantena Paul Razafinkarefo. He was the son of Henri Razafinkarefo, nephew of Queen Ranavalona III of the Imerina kingdom in Madagascar, and Jennie Razafinkarefo (née Waller), the daughter of John L. Waller, the first African American consul to Imerina. The French invasion of Madagascar (1894-95) left his father dead, and forced his pregnant 15-year-old mother to escape to the United States, where he was born in 1895."
With all the restrictions: the New York, USA, was sometimes better than all other places.
I expect a surge of creativeness when more restrictive governments have been replaced by something better.
We have a lot of candidates.
