Hooters founder dies

I am sure that DPF will shed a tear over the news this morning that Hooters Founder Robert Brooks has died aged 69. (Somehow that age is appropriate)

Since opening in 1983, Hooters now serves about 61 million people a year in 46 US states and 19 countries.

Brooks' explanation for his success was simple: "Good food, cold beer and pretty girls never go out of style."

Ain't that the truth.

In rememberance here is little video of what Hooters was all about.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
