Re "Sting says he won't leave his kids a big inheritance" (Page A2, June 23): I couldn't agree more with Sting's announcement that he wasn't leaving a meaningful inheritance to his six children, that a large inheritance would be "albatrosses around their necks."

The Holy Bible may teach us to leave inheritance for our children, but there is nothing more noble than a self-made person. Unearned privilege is inherently unjust.
