You can't take it with you

John T. Walton, heir to the Wal-Mart fortune — one of them, anyway — died yesterday in an ultralight plane crash. He is survived by his wife, his son, his mother, his four siblings, and his $18.2 billion.

Reminds me of the story about the old preacher who delivered the eulogy at a rich man's funeral. As the mourners were filing out of the chapel after the service, a man asked the minister, "So, how much did he leave behind?"

Said the old preacher, "Every penny."
