    Because 62 years ago I appeared in the Hartwell Lane Elementary School epic version of the "Three Billy Goats Gruff," as the biggest billy goat, and who because of my dedication to Method acting, broke the arm of Steve York, the troll, when I butted him off the bridge (um, table).

    My career in theatre ended that day. I did not want to injure again any fellow thespian, but I never lost the thrill standing under the klieg lights or smell of greasepaint.
