For those around the country who might doubt us, we didn’t all vote for Ray Nagin (or Bill Jefferson), but one thing is certain: New Orleanians are in total solidarity in saying, “Stop killing people!”

From The Troublemakers 2004 release, Happy International Flag-Burning Day, “Troublemaker’s Theme”:
Trouble-make, trouble-make, you’re gonna do a double-take, gonna make your legs quake, may even make your heart break, put back together this city of broken dreams. I said take to your feet ‘cuz we’re here in New Orleans.
“We’re All Clones”:
We are the same. We are the same. We are all exactly the same. Instead of trying to kill each other, let’s dance, dance, dance.
The Troublemakers CD features a dedication in the liner notes: “Dedicated to the new baby.”
Helen collaborated in the CD’s production, and took photos for the liner notes.
In keeping with the theme of inspired dreams, WTUL’s 20th Century Classics featured a memorial to artists Helen Hill and Dinneral Shavers with a program of music inspired by dreams.
