As the Sumner Turns

Sumner Redstone will be deposed by the lawyer of his former "companion" as part of the resolution of her lawsuit, according to this piece in the New York Times.

The man is 92 years old and can barely speak. The deposition will be painful.


Doggone it. It's happened now. I've actually started feeling sorry for Redstone. After reading his autobiography, I never dreamed such a thing could be possible. He really comes off as a despicable man in that book; greedy, vain, nasty, vengeful, and utterly without a conscience...and he wrote it himself.

But even he shouldn't be forced to go through this simply because his family is too greedy to pay off the too greedy former companion. There's plenty of dirty money to go around, y'all. No need to humiliate an old man in order to get it. Even if that old man is a real-life Mr. Potter.
