Jack Bogdanski (Lewis & Clark) has written a moving post on the death of Leslie Shapiro, Director of Tax Practice at the IRS from 1973-1995:
You simply will never meet a sweeter, gentler, wiser man. And tough as nails when he had to be -- which in his IRS job, was all the time. We shared a lot of laughs, and we had quite a few serious conversations about what it means to be a lawyer, a tax professional, and a human being. To say that I, like many others in the tax sphere, will miss him is, as they say in our trade, a "gross understatement."
