[NYT] Glen W. Bell Jr., whose idea in 1951 to sell crispy-shell tacos from the window of his hamburger stand became the foundation of Taco Bell, the restaurant chain that turned Mexican fare into fast food for millions of Americans, died at his home in Rancho Santa Fe, Calif. He was 86.I'm convinced that Taco Bell hot sauce is spiked with some kind of addictive agent. That or since "fat is the primary carrier of flavor", their tacos are really refried beef lard. Either way, once I start eating them, I can't stop.
Mr. Bell lived to be 86 ... I wonder if he actually ever ate his own product?
