Ralcorp owned Jack in the Box, of which Goodall was chief executive for many years. He headed a leveraged buyout from Ralcorp that made Jack a public company again.

Just how old is Goodall? I put him around 80, but who knows?

Visduh: Goodall joined the company's training program in 1963. He was president 1970-1996 and CEO 1979-1996. He was chairman 1996-2001. I figure he is 74 or thereabouts. Best, Don Bauder
