To the disgust of most of my high falootin’ friends, I was front and center for the grand reopening of the local Taco Bell/KFC – not for the buckets of greasy chicken but for the sweet, sweet processed faux Mexican that has peppered my life with flavor ever since I was a kid learning bad eating habits. The founder of Taco Bell, businessman Glen Bell, recently passed away the age of 86. According to his Time obituary he lived quite an adventurous life “riding the rails” and such before he opened his first taco stand in San Bernardino. Say what you will about fast food, and I might agree with you even on some finer points, but I’d still like to honor the man that made the burrito supreme happen. Rest in peace, Taco Titan.
