Leona Helmsley died at the age of 87. To be frank, it's not a big loss in humanity. She was a greedy woman, who is proof of the axiom "Only the Good Die Young". She was much more notorious back in the late 80's, early 90's when I did the caricatures of them back then.
Unlike Tammy Fae, my impression of her had not changed, she never rehabilitated her image, but had faded far back in the spotlight.
Still, she was very rich and I don't think her money is going to be put to much good use other than what would be required to avoid the maximum tax penalties.
Oh well, good riddance.
Zsa Zsa, be careful, you're next! I don't wish it on you though.
