So this over at FOXNews.com:
Arthur “Spud” Melin, co-founder of the toy company that introduced the world to the Frisbee, Hula Hoop and other faddish gems of American pop culture, has died. He was 77 and had Alzheimer’s disease.
I was surprised to learn he was still around in the first place. Still, he leaves behind one hell of a legacy on the roofs of houses everywhere. Which is where my Frisbees usually ended up.
