 Don Cornelius, RIP

Don Cornelius, 75, the founder and host of the long running TV show Soul Train, whose cultural impact in gaining wide exposure for African-American musicians in the mainstream can hardly be overstated, has died. He was found dead in Los Angeles, killed by a gunshot wound in what appears to be a suicide, according to police.
