Leona Helmsley Dies
Here is the New York Times obituary. I remember seeing her ads for perfect hotel rooms in the New York Times Magazine in the 1980s. (“I wouldn’t setle for skimpy towels. Why should you?”)
Like Martha Stewart, and Hillary Clinton, she seems both to fascinate and repel large segments of the American population. Why is that? Is it merely the fact that they’re tough women trying to make it in a man’s world ? Or is it more than that?
