He's a comic master and a survivor. Go get 'em, David.

Considering how Richard Pryor and Annette Funicello have suffered from this disease, he looks great! Good for him!

Is that his daughter behind him to the left? I could swear she was one of the contestants on MTV's "Legally Blonde" show...........

He used to severely creep me out on L & S, but he looks like a normal, decent guy.....plus, he's a scout for the Seattle Mariners? Way cool! Baseball fans are the best, and it sounds like he's doing something he really loves. Good for you, David/Squiggy!

I usually only write some sarcastic comment but I must say, I reallllllllllllllly always liked this guy. He was the funniest thing on L & S (only funny thing too). Kicking the crap out of MS also. Good luck, Mr. Squigman.

Not only is he a terrific scout, he's also (or at least was a couple of years ago) a part owner. I had the privilege of meeting and talking to him at length one day when he was at the radio station where I work. The front desk was empty and he came to my office to see where he was supposed to go. He was a gracious, intelligent, lovely man.

The Lenny & Squiggy characters were ones they developed in college to amuse their friends. He is so NOT creepy! And he really does look great!

I meant no offense - the '70's were a LONG time ago! I just think he seems like a very sweet, very cool guy, and it would be a privilege to meet him. Such a talented person (especially for making The Squig such a complete geek), but also a very courageous person - kudos, dude, and much admiration for your battle with MS. You, my man, are a true hero!

Rubyslypperz: I just did a little research, and yeah, I think that's Natalie from "Legally Blonde" on MTV-- her last name just so happens to be Lander, too! Good catch!
