    Richard Morse is the manager of the popular Hotel Oloffson, which inspired the setting for Graham Greene's novel "The Comedians."
     
    Morse also is the lead singer and founder of the Haitian mizik rasin band RAM, which performs Friday night at the Little Haiti Cultural Center in Miami. They also will give a lecture in Haitian Creole at Florida International University on Monday.
     
    RAM is famous for its Thursday night performances at the Hotel Oloffson.
