Oh My...I love “Golden Crust”. I used to eat there a lot when I lived in Florida.
Many times I was the only Caucasian in the Restaurant, and it was never an issue.
I am sorry to hear this. Since my own husband died the same way, the man’s family has my empathy.
Hidden financial problems that will soon be apparent?
Did he have something on the Clintons?
Never heard of the chain here in Texas, but nothing grows like that what isn’t good eats. I hear you about his family (and yours).
I’m kinda glad I’m not the sort that thinks praying doesn’t accomplish anything.
Maybe Hillary thought he was dissin’ Ol’Krusty
He did complain about the Obamacare premium hikes on his company:
It reads as though he had achieved The American Dream.
Sad that he ended this way.
Impressive, founding a franchise now in nine states by the age of 57.
The truth will likely come out later.
I’ve never heard of his company or that burger, but so what?
This is a very large country.
When is the Surgeon General goin the address the out of control epidemic of ‘Arkanside’ kill so many people?
You tagged this with “Crime/Corruption”.
Is there something that you know that we do not?
Maybe...the business started to rise in the Clintons era (1993-2001)
A suicide is a crime.
Sad. I had a friend who did the same thing after being diagnosed with incurable blood cancer. It devastated his family, but I can only assume he didn’t want to put his family through the long goodbye. Went into the garage and ended it. Not acceptable under my belief system. But, I have not been there so - - -.
Well then, by golly, let’s prosecute him!
Its against the law, yes? If so, its a crime.
what did he know about The Clinton’s?
The are a million reasons why people commit suicide.If,by chance,he was facing major business problems one could feel sympathy if he was,in fact,running the company properly but was still having trouble.
