Friday Miscellany

Obituary: Child actor Dickie Moore,89, has died. He started in the movies as a toddler.

He is also remembered for a screen kiss with child superstar Shirley Temple.

He quit acting early on and became a public relations executive.

I didn't know he was married to actress Jane Powell. I am slipping here. He married her in 1988. He was married two times previously.

Mr. Moore claimed that the much-ballyhooed kiss he gave Shirley Temple in “Miss Annie Rooney” (1942) — he was 16, she was 14 — was his first kiss on-screen or off (though Temple, as she admitted in her autobiography, couldn’t say the same).

Decades later, Mr. Moore wrote about the peculiar and not terribly nourishing life of child actors in a 1984 book, “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star (But Don’t Have Sex or Take the Car),” in which he described his own experiences and those of others whom he interviewed. He recalled that when he was 8, he was so used to inscribing autographed pictures for fans that he signed his mother’s birthday card “from your friend Dickie Moore.”

Obituary: Rick Perry's presidential campaign, of voter neglect.

Looks like O.J. Simpson will stay in prison for the time being.

Perhaps Bruce Jenner could share a cell with him.

Supposedly Simpson doesn't think he is too good to do the nasty with trans.
