It's..... The happiest blog on earth
September 21

Today's New York Times ran a surprisingly poignant profile of Gary Coleman.
He did grow older, the cuteness faded, the producers stopped calling... He has become the poster child of the California freak show that is the governor's recall election...

Mr. Coleman insists that he is still a virgin. "Short women want tall men," he said glumly.

Coleman tells the Times he's running to show the world he's an adult with man-sized ideas. He fears he'll spend the rest of his life being remembered as the cute kid from Diff'rent Strokes.

"It would be nice if the world thought of me as something more."

Although he sounded less ambitious when a Berkeley newsweekly first drafted him to run. Coleman said "I'm willing to do it as a goof if you are."
