John Cox

Detroit / Michigan heads - and many heads everywhere - might know John Cox, owner of longtime Head shop Three Doors Down in Pontiac. He was stabbed to death on Thursday by some crackhead who couldn't have pulled more than $100 bucks out of the register there. I've been going to Three Doors Down since I was 13 and had to have my mom drive me there, and John himself is responsible for about 95% of my early Dead tape collection. He was surely instrumental in getting me on the Bus, but the main thing is that a kinder and gentler soul couldn't have existed. He probably would have given that crackhead the money if he had asked. Instead we've lost one of the real good ones, in one of the most ridiculous and senseless acts I've ever heard of. Rest in Peace, John, and have a real good time with Jerry.

by the by

by the by, which of you pranksters will admit to actually sending Soupy cash when he asked the kiddies to swipe those pretty green papers with the presidents pics while their parents was sleeping and send them to him?

dinghy

thought the Soupbone was really named Milton, his brother Lenny (Leonard) Supman;

Hines was one Soupy's original stage names, though not his birth name.

no matter, that which we call a Soupbone by any other name would still throw a pie in your face.

i think "boat" is pretty much

a traditional slang term...although submariners call their subs boats. the PA system is called "1MC"...and i have never figured out why, though i know the designations are broken down for different areas of the ship...1MC being shipwide. but now i've gotten away from the use of this forum.....rest in peace leonard "soupy sales" hines. i'll miss you and yer pies
