Don't Know the Name JR Simplot? Neither Did I?

Interesting obit today for 99-year-old businessman JR Simplot. Great rags-to-riches success story (with a few legal, um, speedbumps along the way) that starts with four $20 gold coins and ends with a fortune estimated in the billions thanks to potatoes, fertilizer, computer chips and more.
