This week, I was talking with a bunch of younger attorneys and made a Captain Caveman reference. None of the lawyers got the reference to the late 1970s, early 1980s Hanna Barbara cartoon.

What most of don’t know is that this unfortunate truism has a long history in our country. It origins are found in a 1789 letter, in which Benjamin Franklin, who you may have heard of, penned that “Our new Constitution is now established, and has an appearance that promises permanency; but in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” Now, as a bit of a history
