Honoring ‘the real Mr. Best’
As I prepare to attend such events in the future without the presence of Ruston’s “Goodwill Ambassador,” let me dispense with some of the tales that surround the generosity of Bill Best. Almost all of these have some element of Kentucky Fried Chicken in them. This information is correct during the years he owned the Kentucky Fried Chicken Franchise and after. But he was joined in his humanitarianism by his wife whose homemade muffins never took second place to any fried chicken at any time during their long lasting marriage.
