I just read on CNN that musician Ray Charles has passed away. Information is pretty limited right now, but I'm very very saddened to hear this news. Ray was an inspiration to many, and despite the difference in generations I always got a major kick out of his music. Just 3 weeks ago I brought Blues Brothers to my parents' house to watch on their HT, and my usually out-of-the-loop parents knew who he was right away. That alone to me was an indication of his popularity, and of how far his reach extended throughout the various generations. Rest In Peace Ray. You'll be missed. Moe.
