I read that article a week or so ago & was surprised, too. I actually wrote a term paper on Arthur ****** when I was in high school. I was appaled when I read that article about how he treated his son and his wife. I can't imagine staying married to someone who refused to aknowledge his child! His wife clearly loved her son and wanted him in her life. Such a sad story.

I also read this in Vanity Fair. Amazing. So glad it's getting wide circulation, especially what an apparently wonderful person his son is. It was ******-the-elder's loss, to be sure.

That just made me so sad for his parents - the father who couldn't deal and the mother who probably would have kept him but had to make a choice between son and husband. At least Daniel has had a good life!
