    Dang... Cool Hand Luke is one of my Newman Fav's also. I think about all the other great work he did..

    I've enjoyed watching him on the race tracks as much as in movies. The guy can drive... fast.

    Gas prices fall for 20th day in a row. But not this gas. Its up slightly.
    What an incentive

    As a result, a car that burns E85 would actually pay $4.069 a gallon to get the same mileage as a car that runs on gas, according to AAA.

    Yup. The hero list gets smaller and smaller. Same with the friend list.
    I wont even look at Classmates anymore. If I get a phone call? Fine. But I dont look for the smaller list.

    He rocked. RIP brother.

    Isaac did a great dance toon back ~79 called "Don't Let Go" that was awesome - as was the theme from "Shaft".

    Don't Let Go

    I used to play it at parties and receptions when I had the DJ business.
