The Colonel had more than one secret

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A manuscript hidden for decades shows
Colonel Harland Sanders was more than an entrepreneur with a
special fried chicken recipe and a vision that helped create the
fast-food industry. It reveals that the white-jacketed man had his
eye on another lucrative market - celebrity food books.

The recent discovery of the unpublished text shows that while
Sanders was helping build Kentucky Fried Chicken into a global
brand, he was recording his life and love of food for the world.

The typewritten manuscript from the mid-1960s was found recently
by an employee rummaging through KFC's archives.

The Louisville-based company plans to offer up Sanders' writings
on the Internet.

The approximately 200-page document is full of homespun anecdotes and life lessons. It also includes a helping of his favorite personal recipes.
