    Man keeps fortune for 92 years

    SAGINAW — The story of Saginaw lumber baron Wellington R. Burt, whose odd final will and testament kept his $100 million fortunes away from his family until 92 years after his death in 1919, continues to be one of MLive’s most-read stories. It's a long read but makes ya wonder

    I was really really enjoying this story until the part about the man wanting to starve the horses to save money. What? Being worth millions wasn't good enough so he thought the few dollars he would save by starving his horses would make him even richer? There's a special place in he// for people like him. And I sincerily hope that at least one of his heirs donates some $$ to an equine rescue.
