I grew up in Tallahassee in the San Luis Ridge, where one of the builder/owner's kids—also a classmate—was arrested for burning a cross in the front yard of legendary FAMU head football coach Jake Gaither.

In memoriam Jay Bennett, the I hate Wilco t-shirt design has been removed. For what it's worth, we "hated" Wilco when they removed Jay and seemingly lost their "soul". Best wishes to everybody on this Memorial Day Eve.
