LEGAL READING LITE

Baseball player Babe Ruth was asking for $80,000 annual salary in 1931.  A sportscaster sarcastically asked The Babe why he should make more in annual salary than Herbert Hoover, The President of the United States.  The Babe responded dryly, "I had a better year than he did".

Frustrate a Frenchman, he will drink himself to death; an Irishman, he will die of angry hypertension; a Swede, he will shoot himself; an American, he will get drunk, shoot you, then establish a million-dollar aid program for your relatives, and die of anguish because the tax credit for the program was deleted from the latest iteration of the tax code.  

Hope is an unruly emotion.  --  Gloria Steinham
