You’re the Ethicist: What’s the right thing to do?

THE ETHICIST

Dead Man’s Burden

By CHUCK KLOSTERMAN

Published: October 4, 2013 

A family member died last winter and named me and my sister the heirs to his estate. In a letter accompanying the will (but not part of it), he asked us to donate several thousand dollars to certain organizations. Some of these are extremely right-wing groups, which we feel border on the fringe: paranoiac with no objectivity, with ties to militant political organizations. We feel conflicted about this — we want to honor our relative’s wishes but really take offense to some of these groups. L.B., CALIFORNIA
