You know what's more depressing than the death of Isaac Hayes?

Discovering how many people don't know how to spell "Isaac". It's ISAAC, with two A's, not two S's!

I learned that in fourth grade, when I put a lot of effort into making a cover for my report on Isaac Asimov, spelling "ISSAC" in big colorful letters. Oops.

Probably because the double-a is an unusual thing in English. A Finn probably wouldn't make that mistake. ;>

And unlike "Aaron," it has the double-A making a schwa sound.

Discovering how many people don't know how to spell "Isaac".

Like TIME magazine, for example.

When I was younger, I pronounced Asimov's first name as Izz-ick.
