GORDON LEE OF "LITTLE RASCALS" FAME -- DEAD

Yes, I'm at an age where the passing of a "Little Rascal" means something, as I was a big fan. However, I watched their many episodes on television, rather than at the movie houses, so don't have me half in the grave, Dear Readers.

Gordon Lee was the character "Porky" -- Spanky's little brother. The "Our Gang" comedies have proven so enduringly popular and timeless that when one of the "gang" passes on it reminds fans of the series that child actors are not frozen in time, as we would like, but real people who grow old and die.
