Business Wire salutes Taco Bell founder Glen Bell, who passed away last weekend at the age of 86. In addition to bringing the world the 7-Layer Burrito, the Volcano Taco, and countless bouts with post-bean digestion issues, Bell was “a fervent supporter of 4-H” and built Bell Gardens, a 115-acre model produce farm that he opened to the public. (Sadly, Bell Gardens appears to be defunct.)

And, as part of today’s Deadly Taco Twofer, the story of a woman who stabbed her husband to death in part because of a fight spurred by her dumping soda on his tacos.
