WORLD'S SMALLEST MAN AND RED SOX LUCKY CHARM HAS DIED AT 38

Nelson de la Rosa, the 2-foot-4 Dominican actor and notorious 
good-luck charm for the Boston Red Sox during their 2004 World 
Series run, died of unknown causes. De la Rosa, believed to be 
one of the world's smallest men became internationally known 
when he appeared alongside actor Marlon Brando in the 1996 
film, "The Island of Dr. Moreau."  This role is said to be 
the inspiration for the Austin Powers movie character, 
"Mini Me" After the baseball fan was introduced to Boston 
pitcher Pedro Martinez the two Dominicans became friends, and 
became a regular presence in the team's clubhouse in the 
playoffs of the 2004 season, in which the Red Sox won their 
first World Series in 86 years.  It is alleged he could be 
delivered back to the Dominican Republic, allegedly to be 
displayed in a museum.

JANE WYATT MOTHER ON "FATHER KNOWS BEST" DIED AT AGE 96

Actress Jane Wyatt, the housewife and mother in the television 
series "Father Knows Best," died at age 96 of natural causes. 
Wyatt was a television pioneer, serving as host of the "Bell 
Telephone Hour." However, it was her co-starring role with 
Robert Young on "Father Knows Best" that catapulted her to 
stardom and led her to become the first consecutive winner of 
the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences' Emmy Award. She 
played roles that included the lead in about 50 plays, 
including "Autumn Garden." Over the next 30 years, she 
appeared in 30 films and a number of plays, often in the role 
of the understanding wife.
