I almost became an Intel employee. I was recruited to take over Facilities Management at the Aloha facility in 1979. Aloha had experienced excessive downtime because of facilities equipment failures. But it would have been a tough assignment. The plant manager and the COO wanted me to come in and clean house. Still, I considered the position.

But then they invited me and Mrs Big Ron to spend some time in the Portland area as part of the company recruiting effort. I gave my Oct 13th football tickets to my Brother-in-law and spent the week in Portland. If Oct 13, 1979 sounds familiar, Frank Kush was fired before the Washington game and was carried ONTO the field. We were dining with our Intel hosts at a nice Downtown Portland restaurant when a busboy informed me that Kush had been fired. Bad Karma. I turned the position down.
