Duke of Cool


“Duke Ellington was so cool that when he was told to use the back entrance, he entered the back door in such a fashion that the back door became the MAIN entrance. No one gave a damn about who was entering the front, because the DUKE was coming in the back. That’s a Real Cool Cat!

After awhile, those same racists were among the hoards of fans that not only waited for him at the FRONT door, but held the door for him and rolled out the red carpet. Yeeaah that’s Cool! He was a SIRIUS Warrior of the spirit because he kept his Cool and didn’t respond to the little shit, but rather chose to go home and sharpen the blade.

If you don’t announce your arrival, they won’t see you coming.”
