“Cheer up! There’s still lots of silver left in that cloud’s lining. It sounds like a loss of about $25 million from an estate of $200 million, while upsetting in how it came about, is not putting the Kamin family into penury. That loss is equivalent to the losses incurred in a bad turn or an average correction in the stock market.
“I’d suggest the Kamins appreciate and enjoy the $175 million they still have, doubtlessly some of it due to Sheldon Carr’s earlier efforts, stop kvetching, stop talking to ghosts (Jack and Syra both died content) and get on with their still very privileged lives. As for Carr, he went a bit meshuga and is already paying for his sins.”

“Bravo, Toronto Life, for unnecessarily eviscerating a man’s character based on nothing but hearsay and inconclusive evidence at this point. Not condoning what could have happened, but why rush this story to print until the full/true story comes out or at least a court’s determination has been made? Total tabloid BS. Shame on you.”
