Talking about KG's grandmother, obviously, and not you know who. Apparently Genevieve Huebsch Gratz, who died last week at the age of 98, was a "fount of unsolicited advice" and taught Kenny-boy everything he knows.

Through her stories, Griffin said, he learned the value of hard work and kindness. Gratz explained to him how when customers couldn't pay for their oil in winter, she would let the bill run until spring, and how Wayne Gratz created a profit-sharing program for his employees.

Oh, and take note, Tim Geithner: know what GHG said to the Citadel founder right before she went into risky surgery earlier this year? "Make sure you pay my taxes on time."
