"I'll keep it short and sweet. Family, religion, friendship. These are the three demons you must slay if you wish to succeed in business."--Mr. Burns
According to the release, published in today's Dallas Morning News, the announcement came from the Sam M. Walton College of Business at the University of Arkansas this morning; Jones will join William Clark, founder of CDI Contractors, which is based in Little Rock, Jim Lindsey, a Fayettville-based real estate developer, and Thomas May, of Simmons First National Bank in Pine Bluff as inductees next year.
Yes, I've never heard of them either.
Jones, of course, made a fortune in oil while operating his business, Jones Oil & Land Lease, out of Arkansas. He bought the Cowboys in 1989, but the company remains active in oil prospecting and, possibly, attempts at world domination.
