Don Tyson dies

Donald J. Tyson, an aggressive and visionary entrepreneur who dropped out of college and built his father’s Arkansas chicken business into the behemoth Tyson Foods, one of the world’s largest producers of poultry, beef and pork, died on Thursday. He was 80. His death, after a brief illness, was announced by Tyson Foods.
I worked for Tyson most of my adult life of course I didn't ever meet the man but I can say one thing about him his checks NEVER bounced.
