... Isaac Hayes, dead at 65. I still get down to the theme from "Shaft". That Isaac Hayes was a baaaaad mother-shut your mouth.

... Bernie Mac, dead at 50. Do yourself a favor, get a hold of the DVD "The Original Kings of Comedy". Bernie Mac brought the funny.

... Wrestling legend "Killer" Kowalski suffers massive heart attack in nursing home. A few of the wrestling blogs (quickly followed by idiots on Wikipedia) erroneously announced his death last night... his condition has since been upgraded to "alive".

Seriously though, "Killer" is a legend, especially around Boston... he has run a wrestling school in the area for years, and has trained some of the big names like Triple H, Perry Saturn and Chyna. And judging from the roller-coaster he's been put through the past few days, the fact that he's still drawing breath proves that he didn't just play a tough SOB in the ring, he *is* one. A former cow-orker of mine interviewed him not too long ago for a cable access show... even at 80 years old, cow-orker said he could have kicked every ass in the room.

Get well soon, Killer. RIP, Bernie Mac and Isaac Hayes.
