Spud man

May 28, 2008

I came home tonight to see today’s issue of the NYTimes — my visiting father has been buying the paper from our grocery store — opened to the obits page, topped with the name J.R. Simplot, the billionaire spud man who supplied French fries to McDonald’s and sponsored my baseball team when I was 12 years old in Caldwell, Idaho. (Picture to come when I can get to the storage unit.)
