Rest in Pieces

Dr. Robert C. Baker, the inventor of the chicken nugget, has died. There's no word as yet whether he will be processed into small bits, reconstituted with other meats, and lightly breaded before being cremated. On a personal note, as the man behind the chicken nugget, Baker was one of the three figures who has had the most profound influence thus far upon my daughter's young life, the other two being my wife and Donald Duck. Rest in tender, convenience-sized pieces, Dr. Baker.
