I like to phrase this differently. EVERYONE has a written legal will. If they didn't deliberately write and execute one on their own, their respective state legislature has a default will written for them. Most people who find out what their will says and it's implications, will choose to take action and write their own plan.

I guess this will also plug a bit the federal budget hole, as there will be a significant estate tax bill due on this one (presumably most of the wealth in shares of AMZN, which might create some selling pressure, but I might be wrong).

When you find yourself agreeing with me more often than not, it's time for a cheshbon hanefesh.

The 87-year-old former space security chief gave further descriptions about exactly what sort of agreements have been made between the aliens and the US, which ostensibly have been made because they wish to research and understand "the fabric of the universe."
Think might be a good idea for his family to find a בית אבות.
