Today's NYT reports on the death of Roger D. Abrahams, who studied African-American folklore. Friends of HDAS will have seen his name in very many places in citations for books he wrote, especially _Deep Down in the Jungle_, an unexpurgated collection of toasts etc. collected in South Philadelphia.
