RIP: Jim Delligatti, inventor of the Big Mac

We read and write every day about Hillary Clinton's never-ending corruption, with the latest being the recount to stall the electoral votes and delegitimize the Trump presidency.  Or the dishonest MSM that are constantly attacking and criticizing Trump while failing to hold Hillary accountable.

For a change, let us remember that on November 28, 2016, Michael "Jim" Delligatti, of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, at age 98, passed away.  Mr. Delligatti is the inventor of the "Big Mac" sandwich, an American icon.  He opened one of the first McDonald's franchises in 1957 in Pittsburgh and at one time owned 47 franchised McDonald's restaurants.  In 1967 he invented the Big Mac and tried it out in his McDonald's in Uniontown, Penn., about 40 miles south of Pittsburgh, and the home of General George C. Marshall.  The rest is history.

Mr. Delligatti was a philanthropist.Top of Form  In 1979, he co-founded Pittsburgh's Ronald McDonald House, a home for families to stay who travel to Pittsburgh seeking medical care at Pittsburgh hospitals, such as Children's Hospital, for their sick children.  He served on the House's board and contributed to the House for several decades.

Jim served as Sergeant, Army 26th Infantry Division, also known as the Yankee Division, in Europe during World War II.

Mr. Delligatti is an American success story: a WWII vet who built a multi-billion-dollar business employing thousands.  He gave back with his contributions to charity.  It's all a welcome change from Hillary, Obama, Pelosi, Harry Reid, Jill Stein, and their small, parasitical ilk.

RIP.
