Bernie Mac and Isaac Hayes ~ Who's Next

They say death comes in threes. Amid the Infrared Air Max 90s and Clientele tees, this weekend has been somber. America, the world, have lost two great people. Bernard "Bernie Mac" Jeffrey McCullough, age 50, died on Saturday of Pneumonia. The Chicago native, one of the Original Kings of Comedy, and family man on the "Bernie Mac" show may have had a rare autoimmune disorder play a part in causing Pneumonia to lead him to his death. He will be missed.

Today, Sunday, this afternoon, Tennesssee native soul singer Isaac Hayes died at age 65. What's with these guys dying young? Isaac was found by his wife unconscious beside a treadmill in his Memphis home. He was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead at 2:08Pm. Having gotten his start at age 5 in a church, Isaac Hayes is known for being one of the most legendary soul singers of all time, Shaft, the voice of the chef on South Park, and being in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Having had health issues in the past including a Stroke in 2006, Hayes was sometimes unsteady in public. Once again, he will be missed.
