Goodman, who was responsible for the hits ‘Love on a Two Way Street,’ and ‘Look at Me (I’m in Love),’ joined the New Jersey based group, The Moments, in 1968 alongside Harry Ray and William Brown.
The trio found success on the charts throughout the 1970s before renaming themselves as Ray, Goodman and Brown. A year following the name change, Goodman & Co. struck their third #1 R&B hit ‘Special Lady.’
Jack Tatum, a safety for the Oakland Raiders from 1971 to 1979, was known for two things: knocking the hell out of an offensive player and paralyzing New England Patriots receiver Darryl Stingley in a 1978 preseason game. Tatum died at 61 on Tuesday, after a massive heart attack. According to the Associated Press, Tatum was dealing with diabetes and other health problems for the last several years.
In the ’70s, Tatum sent fear in to the hearts of wide receivers trying to catch a pass across the middle or in the open field. He wasn’t called “The Assassin” for nothing. It was just another day at the office to see Tatum knock a helmet off of a receiver or knock the wind out of a running back, but his most controversial hit came when he tackled Stingley.
YOU AINT BAWLIN TILL YOU HAVE ONE OF THESE…
Yesterday, we reported on the Chevy Volt electric car and it’s $41,000 price tag. Now, we know some of you were probably thinking that a Chevy doesn’t exactly fit your personal steez, but we might have something for you. The Porsche supervisory board has green lighted the production of the 918 Spyder hybrid, complete with a 500-horsepower V8 and 109-horsepower electric motor. The new Porsche will allegedly net 78 miles per gallon and will retail for slightly more than the Volt, at around $650,000. We’re unclear as to how a 500-hp Porsche is going to get 78 mpg while a 140-hp Prius gets around 40 mpg… but hey, here’s to hoping those crazy Germans know something we don’t!
A federal judge handed a victory to supporters of illegal immigration yesterday by blocking a tough new law in Arizona that would have required police officers to check a person’s immigration status while enforcing other laws.
U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton also provided cover for federal lawmakers who have ducked and dodged the complex issue of how to curb illegal immigration and have forced states that border Mexico like Arizona to pass their own laws to deal with the issue.
Arizona leaders will likely appeal the ruling to overturn Bolton’s order which takes effect just a day before the Arizona law was supposed to take effect.
Bolton’s order stopped parts of the Arizona law that would have required immigrants to carry their papers at all times and that would have made it illegal for illegal aliens to solicit work in public places as day laborerscommonly do.
Bolton reasoned that checking immigration status “burdens lawfully present aliens because their liberty will be restricted while their status is checked.”
