business news in context, analysis with attitude

Sometimes, I encounter a piece of writing that just blows me away. This morning, I want to share one such story with you ... an obituary, written about a gentleman named Harry Weathersby Stamps, in Mississippi's Sun Herald.

It is hard to excerpt this obit, but here's just a taste:

"Harry was locally sourcing his food years before chefs in California starting using cilantro and arugula (both of which he hated). For his signature bacon and tomato sandwich, he procured 100% all white Bunny Bread from Georgia, Blue Plate mayonnaise from New Orleans, Sauer's black pepper from Virginia, home grown tomatoes from outside Oxford, and Tennessee's Benton bacon from his bacon-of-the-month subscription. As a point of pride, he purported to remember every meal he had eaten in his 80 years of life."

And the obit gets only better from there.

You can read the whole thing here. And when you're done, if you're anything like me, you'll wish you'd known Harry Weathersby Stamps.
