April 15th....Welcome Home Leona Helmsley.
There she is. Leona Helmsley God rest her soul. She was sent to the federal prison in Lexington, KY right when I was leaving grad school. She was a tax cheat and was thrown in the can on April 15th by order of the judge. She said "taxes are for little people" and that ticked the judge off.
In her honor, my favorite liquor store put up a sign that read: "Welcome Home Leona Helmsley". I have never forgotten that. So when the grim reaper comes to visit someone that really deserves it I break out the Welcome Home Leona Helmsley phrase.
And also every April 15th.
