My bad.Well I read that he has stopped making public appearances and lives in assisted living center now.He also lost his wife 4 years ago and stopped going out to conventions after that.I reckon he will get a good deal of attention when he does go.

Was listening to Gilbert Gottfried's podcast on the way in to work and they mentioned they couldn't get Jerry Maren on as a guest because he's in no position healthwise to be interviewed. On the clock?

Interesting.He must at 95 1/2 be one of the oldest dwarves alive.I always thought they had a far lesser life expectancy.I think he is the last surviving cast member of the Wizard of Oz now unless I am mistaken.I know he is the last surviving munchkin but not sure about the rest of the cast.

 

Because of Verne Troyer's shenanigans I looked up their life expectancies and indeed, I couldn't see that they were shorter than usual. For example, Margaret Pellegrini died at 89, Karl Slover at 93.
