Historical note

This is something my father told me about when I was a kid, and for some reason I've always remembered it. But recently I tried to verify it on the web and was unable to. However, I talked to my father again last week and asked him about it and he confirmed that I didn't make it up, so here it is.

According to my father, at one point, some years after he sold Kentucky Fried Chicken, Colonel Sanders was interviewed on some teevee show. In this interview, he revealed that he disapproved of the way KFC's new owners were managing the restaurants and called one of the new products "nothing but a damn greasy doughball".

Not long after that, he was committed to a rest home.

With a bit of luck, now if someone else tries to find information about this (by, say, searching for "damn greasy doughball" on Google) they will at least be able to determine that someone else remembered the interview.
