Our founder and visionary leader, Sheldon G. Adelson, passed away last night at the age of 87 from complications related to treatment for non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma.

3. what was the probably apocryphal thing Mark Twain and/or Clarence Darrow said?

I've never wished for anyone's death, but I've read some obituaries with approval.

33. Clarence Darrow, in his 1932 autobiography:

"All men have an emotion to kill; when they strongly dislike some one they involuntarily wish he was dead. I have never killed any one, but I have read some obituary notices with great satisfaction."

17. His heir is likely his wife, who was born in Israel

They have given a lot of money to Israel and the best thingfor us is if she gives money to Israeli causes and medical causes (she is a doctor). Obviously, the Israeli causes will be right wing, but Israel is currently so majority right wing, the difference is only slight. (In the up coming election, the only parties that could really be considered as on the left are Meretz which in a recent poll was at 6 seats - near the threshold below which they get none and the (Arab) joint list, which has no chance of being in a government coalition. Labor was below the threshold. ) Not to mention the leadership in the US is more significant internationally.

I guess his widow will enjoy the former US Embassy compound in Tel Aviv by herself now. She, too, has been a big Trump supporter.

11. DR Adelson?

Funny how no repubes will object to calling him Dr. with just honorary degrees that he, in reality, paid for! But they attack Dr. Biden who actually worked for hers.

“Today, more than 50,000 Sands team members have Dr. Adelson and the entire Adelson family in their thoughts and prayers and are grateful to have had their lives touched by a true force of nature.”

He was a Union breaker and tax cheat. I always avoided his casinos when in Vegas.

14. Related: Sheldon Adelson, Conservative Donor And Casino Titan, Dies At 87

But after early reservations, the Adelsons backed Trump's 2016 election effort; they gave $5 million to his inaugural committee and then donated about $500,000 to the legal defense fund for his White House aides. During the 2018 midterms, the Adelsons donated more than $100 million to Republicans.

Never thought it was going to happen. Did the Brinks truck follow the hearse?

Glad he lived long enough to see how much money he wasted on Trump.

His wife has said she will continue some of the giving (most likely to Israel, IMO), but the bottomless money well has dried up for the Gee Oh Pee.

Quite a few years ago, Rachel had a story on his casino on an island in the South China Sea that had very young prostitutes that were available for the rich and shameless.

I wonder if any had to sign a Trump NDA.
