    I Was Very, Very Young, Mind You

    But I do remember. Barely. Old footage and videos has helped keep those memories alive but mostly they've faded long ago. When his skin tone started changing and everyone was talking about it I was annoyed at how people could penalize him for a disorder. He'd probably have been...
