    The Associated Press reports that Eddie Kirkland, an 88-year-old blues legend known as the "Gypsy of the Blues," was killed in Florida when his car turned into the path of a Greyhound bus. 13 passengers were on the bus, which was being driven by 67-year-old James Smith of Tallahassee, the Highway Patrol said. No one on the bus was injured, thankfully, despite the tragedy that befell Kirkland.

    R.I.P., Mr. Kirkland.
