Deal-Maker Burkle Highly Overrated

November 15, 1998

* Ron Burkle, the great deal maker ["Burkle's Next Deal: Internet Start-Up?" Oct. 20]? When he and his followers were thrown out of Stater Bros., they bought Jurgensen's Grocery Co., sold the store leases and destroyed that famous Southern California company started in 1936.

As a former employee of 25 years, I know he is overrated. How can you be rated upstanding when you succeed by destroying something that can never be replaced, along with the lives of others?
