Brooke Astor and wealth management PR

Poor Brooke Astor. At 104 years old, she can't be left in peace.

Have you seen all the articles? Here's a list of those that have appeared so far in The New York Times , including an editorial, "If It Could Happen to Her..."

My first thought was to feel sorry for the entire family. Then wonder what could have been done to prevent this situation.

Then I thought, "This would make a great hook for a wealth management article."

Let's watch to see how long it takes before such an article appears.
