"[Michael] Vick faces sentencing from a tough judge, and also the loss of his income because he is suspended without pay and the Atlanta Falcons will seek the return of much of his $37 million signing bonus. Which means Vick likely will need some money. Maybe he could ask Helmsley's little white dog for some. According to the terms of Helmsley's will, her small Maltese, Trouble, will receive a trust fund of $12 million. Trouble could turn out to be worth more than Vick. There is justice -- and then there is poetic justice."
