I didn’t know the plural for shrimp is shrimps in British English.
Hmmm. I wonder if she’s single?
1) Did you miss the part where she’s DEAD?
2) She never did anything to anyone on this forum except provide them with a very nice hotel room, possibly chastising the slack in order to do so.
3) She had very bad legal representation. I know this because a relative who went against her joked about how Helmsley’s lawyer’s voir dire sucked and how they got a friendly on the jury.
4) As if everybody on this board wouldn’t get a kick out of being fed shrimp after each lap in a lovely private pool. Except of course the orthodox, who must be contented with a bit of lox.
“Although the Helmsleys were generous to charities, they also liked to flaunt their wealth.”
I like how the reporter thinks that the two clauses of this sentence suggest some sort of contradiction.
Also note that altho she was famous for being harsh in her treatment of hotel employees, that was in fact only true for the management types who she expected to use their brains. The union workers – bell staff and maintenance, thought well of her.
Oh, I see, you want to marry the *bitch*, not the bitch!
In which state were you thinking of getting this done, now?
I do agree that dogs suffer disproportionately from inadequate legal counsel. No writs of habeas neuterus, for example.
triticale – I wouldn’t put it past her to come down on nonperforming ‘help.’ This would not necessarily alienate the majority of workers, as it is encouraging to see that the leadership can tell the difference between a good worker and a screwup.
In the wooden-ship Royal Navy, for instance, most seamen did not object in principle to the practice of flogging, because they knew (believed, if you like) that it was necessary under the circumstances.
