The Hardships of the Rich

I feel so bad for Cindy today, her life must be so difficult. It turns out that she has not paid her property taxes on a La Jolla condo for about 4 years.

When you’re poor, it can be hard to pay the bills. When you’re rich, it’s hard to keep track of all the bills that need paying. It’s a lesson Cindy McCain learned the hard way when NEWSWEEK raised questions about an overdue property-tax bill on a La Jolla, Calif., property owned by a trust that she oversees. […]

County officials say the trust still owes an additional $1,742 for this year, an amount that is overdue and will go into default July 1. Told of the outstanding $1,742, the aide said: “The trust has paid all bills shown owing as of today and will pay all other bills due."- Newsweek
They just keep making it easy. I mean really-- gee, I am so rich it is hard to remember to pay all my bills? For FOUR years? Damn, I wish I had those kind of hardships to deal with.
