The Associated Press: Egg McMuffin Inventor Dies at 89

"HE WAS VERY PARTIAL TO EGGS BENEDICT": Herb Peterson, inventor of the Egg McMuffin, has passed away at the age of 89. It opened the way for McDonald's to serve breakfast, giving its restaurants 5+ more profitable hours in the day, and no fast food chain has come close in creating as good a morning product since. (Though, okay, I'm more partial to the Sausage McMuffin.)
