East Bound & Down, Toward Heaven

Fans of Smokey and the Bandit will be sad to learn that Jerry Reed died yesterday of complications from emphysema, at the age of 71. I'd read somewhere a few months ago he was very ill, so this isn't a huge surprise to me. Doesn't mean it sucks any less.

Ron gets a sad truck-shaped no-prize for letting us know of the passing of this great entertainer.

That's too bad...always liked Jerry Reed (as a personality...not my kind of music).
