Queen of Mean Convicted, 1992 Leona Helmsley, nicknamed the "Queen of Mean" by the press, receives a four-year prison sentence, 750 hours of community service, and a $7.1 million tax fraud fine in New York. For many, Helmsley became the object of loathing and disgust when she quipped that "only the little people pay taxes." Leona's husband, Harry, was one of the world's wealthiest real estate moguls, with an estimated $5 billion to $10 billion in property holdings. The couple lived in a dazzling penthouse overlooking Central Park and also maintained an impressive mansion in Greenwich, Connecticut. Leona, who operated the Helmsley Palace on Madison Avenue, was severely disliked by her employees. Though they lavishly furnished their homes and hotel, the Helmsleys were curiously diligent about evading the required payments and taxes for their purchases. Much of their personal furniture was written off as a business expense, and there were claims that the Helmsleys extorted free furnishings from their suppliers. Contractors were hardly ever paid on time-if at all-and many filed lawsuits to recover even just a portion of what they were owed. Leona reportedly also purchased hundreds of thousands of dollars of jewelry in New York City but insisted that empty boxes be sent to Connecticut so that she could avoid the sales tax. Given her offensive personality, many were quite pleased by Leona's legal troubles. Even celebrity lawyer Alan Dershowitz could not win her immunity from the law. Following her conviction, Federal Judge John Walker publicly reprimanded her, saying, "Your conduct was the product of naked greed [and] the arrogant belief that you were above the law." Leona Helmsley was sent to jail in 1992 and was released in 1994. In 2002, Helmsley, whose husband Harry died in 1997, again found herself in court after being sued by Charles Bell, a former employee who accused Leona of firing him soley because he was homosexual. A jury ordered Helmsley to pay him more than $11 million in damages. Helmsley died in August 2007 at age 87. She famously left $12 million to her dog, Trouble.

Hulk Hogan WWF Debut - 1979 Hulk Hogan made his WWF debut (yes, it was called the World Wrestling Federation then) in this November 1979 TV match. As the clip shows, Hogan was originally a heel managed by Classy Freddy Blassie. The 26-year-old Hogan barely works up a sweat in this match versus hapless jobber Harry Valdez.

Wait Till Your Father Gets Home Anyone remember this show? Wait Till Your Father Gets Home was arguably the first animated series created with a totally adult audience in mind. Total Television notes the show 'was strongly reminiscent of All in the Family.' Indeed it was. Between 1972 and 1974, 48 episodes were created by Hanna-Barbera for syndication. Tom Bosley provided the voice of main character Harry Boyle, a typical American father who tried to provide for a family of five. His wife Irma and two eldest children (overweight Alice and lazy Chet) held distinctly different political and social viewpoints than the man of the house, but youngest son Jamie tended to agree with dad most of the time. Rounding out the cast was ultra-right-wing neighbor Ralph Kane whose anti-communist zeal basically turned part of the neighborhood into an armed camp. Ralph was voiced by Jack Burns. This clip shows a brief teaser for a first-season episode and the show's opening credits and theme song.

President Truman Threatens Music Critic President Harry S. Truman had one child--daughter Margaret--who was born in 1924. She began singing locally in choirs in Missouri as a youth. By the late 1940s, when her father was president, she got more noteworthy singing gigs on the radio and in occasional concerts. On December 5, 1950 Margaret performed a program of Schumann, Schubert and Mozart pieces at Constitution Hall in Washington. The Washington Post's music critic, Paul Hume, wrote, "Miss Truman is a unique American phenomenon with a pleasant voice of little size and fair quality. She is extremely attractive on stage. Yet Miss Truman cannot sing very well. She is flat a good deal of the time--more so last night than at any time we have heard her in past years." Upon reading Hume's review, father Harry's paternal instincts kicked in and he went berserk. The president quickly penned a blistering missive to Hume that called him a "frustrated old man who wishes he could have been successful." It concluded with the president bluntly stating, "Some day I hope to meet you. When that happens you'll need a new nose, a lot of beefsteak for black eyes, and perhaps a supporter below." Hume was astonished by the letter and showed it to his editor who planned to print it in the next issue of the Post. However, the paper's publisher nixed the idea. Nevertheless, Hume told Milton Berliner, the music critic of the Washington News, about HST's threatening letter. The story ran in the rival newspaper and was later widely circulated well beyond the District of Columbia via the wire services.

Joe Theismann Injury - 1985 Definitely not for the faint of heart: Washington Redskins' quarterback Joe Theismann's famous career-ending leg injury. It occurred during a Monday Night Football telecast on November 18, 1985 when a trick play went awry and two New York Giants (Harry Carson and Lawrence Taylor) tackled him in the backfield. Described medically as a "comminuted compound fracture," the play was voted by ESPN viewers as the most memorable injury of all time. (By the way, "comminuted" means "pulverized"--which is a fairly accurate description of the horrible injury.) Theismann, age 36, never played another down in the NFL. His right leg never healed quite properly; it's slightly shorter than his left leg. Frank Gifford, O.J. Simpson and Fran Tarkenton were in the ABC broadcast booth that night.

Salvage 1 - Forgotten TV Show Andy Griffith starred in two memorable TV series--but he also was involved in a few stinkers too. In 1979 he played the central character in a far-fetched ABC adventure/sci-fi series titled Salvage 1. Griffith played Harry Broderick, an eccentric junk dealer with high aspirations. In the series' pilot episode, he and his crew built a rocket to fly to the moon to retrieve the space junk abandoned by the NASA astronauts! Later episodes were a little bit more plausible. (For example, one centered on Broderick's crew trying to find a cache of Confederate gold from the Civil War.) Salvage 1 premiered on January 29, 1979. Not surprisingly, the show never really caught on with viewers, and it was not renewed for the fall season. Nevertheless, ABC tried to resurrect it in November 1979 as a replacement for two other short-lived series. Seven new episodes were made but only three aired before ABC pulled the plug for good.
