Don Cornelius Commits Suicide
The creator/host of the classic show Soul Train has shockingly shot himself to death.
He was a legend, a silky-voiced purveyor of hot R&B sounds that made you get off your feet and boogie along with the show's audience members.
And in the process of doing the show, he was breaking all sorts of boundaries and moving things forward in our culture.
I'm so stunned I can't even think of a sensible response.
