It's nice to read about a big corporation having to do the right thing. That little dog made a lot of money for taco hell.

I've worked with Tom Rinks. He's one of the most creative people I've met and a very nice guy. This suit was spread over many, many years and I'm glad to see he'll be rewarded for his creativity.

Chalk one up for the good guys!
