Isaac Hayes in hospital

Isaac Hayes, the singer, composer and actor who is most recognized these days for providing the voice of Chef on South Park is being treated for exhaustion in a Memphis hospital. Hayes won an Oscar in 1971 for composing the theme to the movie Shaft and still tours with his band. He recently did an interview with The Onion where he talked mostly about his music career and his response to South Park's recent tirade against Tom Cruise and Scientology (Hayes is himself a Scientologist). As it turns out, he has a sense of humor about it. I always kind of figured as much.
