Untitled[edit]

Why does this bio not mention his ex-wife? This obituary says they were married for over 30 years: http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=9E0CE1DA1638F934A15750C0A964958260 —Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.235.251.198 (talk) 13:21, 3 March 2008 (UTC)

I heard this guy was gay. See OutWeek for details on the matter I guess. --69.86.151.144 (talk) 00:56, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

He was gay. But he was married, and had at least one son. Tsuguya (talk) 14:26, 14 November 2009 (UTC)

This is the only way to communicate with you, editor. I don't appreciate being accused of vandalism for a legitimate comment, which was not crude or rude! The contents of the talk page, which I assume is for making comments about content; is not in the article. You are being mean to a Newbie and it is unfair and unwarranted. You keep talking about a sandbox, I don't know what it is or what it does... You are just MEAN, that's all. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.108.55.155 (talk) 01:46, 9 December 2013 (UTC)

Family[edit]

This article says nothing beyond a passing reference about Malcolm's family, especially missing is his very famous son (and former US presidential candidate) Steve Forbes.--96.238.52.223 (talk) 20:28, 12 June 2010 (UTC)

Yes, this article badly needs an "Early life" or "Family" section (or both).--Rollins83 (talk) 18:33, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

Saying/Proverb regarding toys and vast collections[edit]

Wasn't it Malcolm Forbes who coined the phrase "He who dies with the most toys wins"? A little note about that and his enormous collection of cars, art and Fabergé eggs would be nice. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 213.114.2.87 (talk) 17:57, 5 November 2012 (UTC)
