    I don't want to support that organization by visiting their site. Who are the inductees?

    Re: ISU Hall of Fame to Add 10 Members

    I think it's pretty cool that the owner of 7 Flags and "Health is Wealth" host on 98.3 is one of us, and now a Hall of Famer to boot. Now I see where his intensity comes from. I found this article on him talking about why he chose ISU over Iowa. Pretty funny. It's halfway down, below Lorenzen.
