The New York Times reported that Leonard Skinner died in Florida. He was 77, and a former high school gym teacher who did not appreciate long hair on boys. He taught at Robert E. Lee high school, by the way. The North won the civil war, right? Anyway, some of those boys would eventually immortalize Mr. Skinner as Lynryd Skynyrd. I am not a big Southern Rock guy, but that's cool.
Here's hoping someone played Freebird for him at the funeral.
