Mickey Rooney

Just got off AA200 from LAX to MIA. I was seated in 3A and Mr Rooney was in 4F. He was traveling with a minder. I looked him up on Wiki and see he is 93 years old and has been married 8 times in his life. What an icon.

A traveling partner that helps them along. Usually seen with older travelers that need help with bags, etc. but have the resources to just fly someone along with them. An assistant that looks over them, for lack of a better term.

For BRP and other "Frequency Kenneth" folks, at a mid 2000s New Yorker festival event in NYC, some one from the floor actually asked Rather that question. The audience was generally confused, unfortunately. Rather ignored the question. No violence ensued.

Sat in 2J next to John Malkovich today (31 Jan 2013) on AA1470 LAX>ORD. Kept to himself all flight long. He's going to be appearing with the Chicago Symphony in "The Infernal Comedy" this weekend.
