# CDLXXV…Uncovered (Almost Twice)…

The title refers to the fact that this was almost omitted (long story…no time) but, since I’m here, might as well post it…

# clxxvii₂…For “The Penguin”…

For those that don’t follow the title’s meaning, it is because today, November 16th, is the birthday of the original “Batman” (1966 TV) character known as “The Penguin”, late versatile actor Burgess Meredith (1907-1997).  His name, for those of you that aren’t old enough to know, was synonymous with brilliant acting, as he played in such iconic movies of my youth {“Rocky”, “Clash of the Titans”, “The Twilight Zone” (1983 movie)}.

His almost 70 year career in film and television MORE than merit his place here…besides the fact that, whenever I feel down, I look to iconic figures like his portrayal of Sylvester Stallone’s pugilist’s trainer, Mickey, as a kind of booster…if you’ve seen the movie, you’ll understand the metaphor…

Also celebrating with you are/were; late voice actor Daws Butler (1916-1988), NASCAR Hall of Famer Terry Labonte (1956), actress Marg Helgenberger (1958), former New York Met hurler Dwight Gooden (1964), former “Cosby Show” alum Lisa Bonet (1967), actress Martha Plimpton (1970), figure skating icon Oksana Baiul (1977), actress Maggie Gyllenhaal (1977), songstress Allison Crowe (1981), former New York Giants’ icon Osi Umenyiora (1981) and former New York Knicks’ center Amar’e Stoudemire (1982).

Thanks for taking yet another romp through my knowledge and experiences…
