Obituaries: Samuel Glazer and Murray Lender

Breakfast of champions!

Two men who played an important role in my medical education died recently: Samuel Glazer, co-inventor of the Mr. Coffee coffee-maker, and Murray Lender, who introduced frozen bagels to a nation that, until the 1970s, didn’t realize it needed them.

Fresh or days old: Didn't matter.

On behalf of those of us who somehow survived on a Glazer-and-Lender-based diet, a moment of silence…

(I wonder if the inventor of the bear-claw is still alive?)
