    This isn't about our former fellow AMT poster. This is about Herman Cain, founder of Godfather's Pizza, correct? Sorry for his family's loss. Bummer that he got sucked in with the covidiots and thought he was above wearing a mask.

    As a current resident of the city of Omaha, where Godfather's started, I can tell you that it was not Herman Cain who created the company. It was started by a local guy named Gregg Johnson who sold it to local guy Willie Thiessen in 1974 who then sold to Pillsbury in 1985 who brought in Cain in 1986 to run the company.
    We don't have much here besides Warren Buffet and the NCAA College World Series so they have to brag where they can.

    I think most of us know where he stood on this. Foolish as he was, It’d be nice to respect the intent of the OP.

    I thought Cain was kind of a simpleton but he would have been a much better president than tRump.  I have no doubt about that.

    Every death is sad , Herman Cain constantly said  mask don't work , this was a hoax , numbers were inflated to hurt trump ect ect.

    Went out with out a mask to large gatherings including the Trump Rally last month in OK.

    It is sad that he passed but I don't have a ton of sympathy on this one. My hope is maybe just maybe this will get some others on the trump end to wear masks.

    And? Stooping to that level and pointing out a “gotcha” moment on a dead guy? I just think it’s unnecessary.

    I don't enjoy the idea of reveling anyone's death.  That said, I think, or at least hope, that there's some value in sharing the fact that someone calls it a hoax and then falls victim to it.  There are ways to do that without doing a touchdown dance and high-fiving.  Of course, you'll always be accused of it (to own the libs) but hey, here's a fairly well-loved right-winger saying all the shit all the right-wingers say. Sweet karma?  Not to me.  Valuable cautionary tale?  I think so.
