Fund Razzer.

That's funny. I was razzin you.

I don't really care about the memorial. I think it's up to the locals.

I think that Don earned the legend status that he has. Be it infamous or famous.

I can make the point better:

Plaque or no plaque, it doesn't change the fact that we all know his name, and so many great brands.
The fact that this was a fringe "sport" when Don was doing his thing, and now Cigarette has become like Kleenex in terms of one brand standing for an entire class of products.

Only a marketing virtuoso could go down the same street selling the same company and concept over and over again.

The boater in me thinks he is ok. The marketing guy in me thinks he's a freaking genius.
