    Olbermann will have a tribute, I'm sure.
    I'm interested in jobs and you won't create jobs by forcing employers to pay their employees $9/hr- Sea Ray
    I'd say min wage should be about $9/hr - Sea Ray

    This man should have been UNANIMOUS choice for HOF when they did the Negro League inductees. What better way than to have their top diplomat to be the headliner. Its a crying shame he died before he got the call.

    RIP Buck.

    Remember this from the man, himself:

    "Shed no tears for Buck," he told the crowd. "I couldn't attend Sarasota High School. That hurt. I couldn't attend the University of Florida. That hurt.

    "But not going into the Hall of Fame, that ain't going to hurt me that much, no. Before, I wouldn't even have a chance. But this time I had that chance. Just keep loving old Buck."

    Class and grace personified. The world was a better place because he was here.
    When all is said and done more is said than done.

    Very sad news...he was such a wonderful man. I hope this hits the maroons that failed to vote him into the HoF hard.

    Rest in peace, Buck.
