Circle the wagons!

Good morning Netizens…

After a wealth of politics and opinion regarding our new President, while I was cruising the used car lot of news in the paper online this morning, a story rose up and bit me where I live.

Say it isn’t so!

Eighty-one year old actor Peter Falk, according to the news, has Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, and although he isn’t even in the grave, his family are already circling the wagons trying to fight for the right to be conservators of his personal affairs. His adopted daughter, a private investigator, Catherine Falk, applied last month to be named conservator over her father’s affairs. Falk’s wife of 32 years, Shera Falk, is having none of the the deal, and is opposing any such arrangement in court.

Aren’t most of us fortunate in that, if we were to acquire Alzheimer’s, none of our post-recession estates would have enough for our kids to fight over?

Although most readers will recall Peter Falk as the moth-eaten deliberately-bumbling detective on the TV Columbo series, a visit to will list many of his other credits and awards, not to mention Falk possesses a Masters Degree in Public Administration from Syracuse University and is a Certified Public Accountant, f’gosh sakes.
