Wendy's founder, Dave Thomas, dead at 69

Wendy's restaurant founder, Dave Thomas, is dead at age 69. I think people should eat Big Bacon Classics all this week in hommage of this fine individual. Wendy's is probably the best fast food joint out there, but I don't understand why they don't serve onion rings.

They don't say how he died, but he did have quadruple bypass heart surgery in '96, and he was on kidney dialysis since last year. Poor Dave, he won't be in any more dumb commercials.
