There are 2 comments on Sumner Redstone, Media Titan and Longtime Friend of BU, Has Died

  1. “what … really counts is competence. What doesn’t count is race, religion, gender, or where your family is.”

    What an antiquated concept … and yet so desperately important for today’s students to understand!

  2. Alas, the author appears to have overlooked perhaps the single most illuminating (Sumner appreciated the pun) expression of will in his extraordinary life. The Copley Plaza fire of 1979, when an on-fire Mr. Redstone hung by his hands from a frozen ledge until firemen were able to get a ladder up to rescue him. He suffered the most horrific burns over most of his body.
