Subject:        Lear's Estate Planning

The current issue of "Forethought," a publication of Chase Manhattan
Bank, offers the following:

"Shakespeare's tragedy _King Lear_ offers a cautionary tale of what can
happen when making decisions about the division of family assets among
children. Granted that you won't face the mayhem and destruction of a
kingdom that Lear did. . . . With the assistance of the flexible
structure offered by testamentary trusts . . . and living trusts, we
have been able to propose estate plans that have kept peace and harmony
in many a kingdom."

Lear could have used a lot of help, but I suspect that something more
than Chase Retirement Services would have been in order.
