  • R.I.P. Leonard Skinner

    http://jacksonville.com/news/metro/2...sake-dies-77-0


    Leonard Skinner, the Florida high school teacher whose strict rules inspired a group of boys to name their band after him (Lynyrd Skynyrd), died in a nursing home, his son said. He was 77.


    Heck of a way to be famous.

    Leonard Skinner is now truly a Free Bird...

    Life is funny. How this man got famous just for being there as a teacher. Amazing to me.

    R.I.P. Brother!

        To a New Yorker like yourself, a hero is some type of weird sandwich. Not some nut who takes on three Tigers!

          Actually, Mr. Skinner was just enforcing the rules others had put in place regarding the length of one's hair...they weren't his rules...
          Chicago Blackhawks done didn't do it again!
