200 years ago, okay maybe it was in the 60's but it seems that long ago, I was the awkward kid in grade school with the thick glasses and crew cut. I didn't have any friends .... And then the 70's hit and I was in junior high school. This was also the beginning of mandatory school busing. I welcomed the new students and for the first time in my life I had some friends. They turned me on to their world and in particular their music. So it is with much sadness that I hear that Issac Hayes passed away today. Thank you for the music and may you rest in peace. Shaft lives!
