Boss! Boss! De Plane! De Plane!
RICARDO MONTALBAN DEAD AT 88
Since this is officially International Corinthian Leather Day, we should probably hear from Señor Montalban himself.
He could have sold a rusty wagon on square block wheels and made it sound elegant. He told David Letterman he made the term Corinthian Leather up because it sounded nice. "They found a leather that was very pliable, very soft and very durable, so Corinthian!" Montalban said. "But does it mean anything?" Letterman asked."Nothing," Montalban conceded."
