"I've Done Enough Dyin' Today."



Goodbye to Rickey Smith, who appeared on Season 2 of "American Idol," and finished 8th:
Local authorities said Smith died when a 27-year-old male driver drove his GMC pickup truck the wrong way on a highway near Oklahoma City and crashed into him, a police official told E! News. Smith, who was driving a Honda Accord, was pronounced dead at the scene....

"As I sit here in utter disbelief about the fact that you went to be with the Lord...I think back on all the fun times we had," [wrote Ruben Studdard, who was that season's winner]. "How we set up for hours in our room in the Idol mansion talking and listening to music. How much fun we all had on our very first tour. You were the heart of our season and the true definition of a real friend...."

Car crashes are the favored way of getting rid of one parent in DVDs.

Studdard is obviously a class act and true friend.

Another reason to drive a full sized pickup over a Honda Accord. It is called physics. Of course, the truck has worse gas mileage, but gas has been running a bit over $2 this year, so that isn't a big issue, unless the AGW and environmental wackos manage to kill fracking here.
