The virtues of regularly reading the obits...John Holahan, inventor of Lucky Charms, died last month. He invented the "magically delicious," super-sweet cereal in 1963 by cutting those hard orange marshmallow circus peanuts into pieces and sprinkling them over Cheerios.
This year, however, life turned from magically delicious to tragically malicious. Holahan and his wife Rosalind were involved in a bad car accident on their way to visit their daughter who was dying of liver cancer. They both died in the crash; their daughter died two days later.
But oh well, have some sugary cereal and have a nice day.
