Light-Hearted Post: Dogs over Indigent

From the New York Times: "The two people who described the statement said Mrs. Helmsley signed it in 2003 to establish goals for the multibillion-dollar trust that would disburse assets after her death. The first goal was to help indigent people, the second to provide for the care and welfare of dogs. A year later, they said, she deleted the first goal."  Full story here.  Helmsley it should be remembered is quoted as saying "only the little people pay taxes" (CommonDreams story here).
