    I have heard of one of them. That the other does not ring a bell which is probably is a testament to 1975.

    Leif Garrett=what too many drugs can do to a child star
    Shaun Cassidy=son of Shirley Jones & Jack Cassidy, and David Cassidy's younger half brother

    Both were pop singers/actors in the 1970s. Both had great hair.

    I have heard of Cassidy. Wasn't he one of the Hardy Boys? The other one, nope, not that I recall unless it was 30 seconds on "I Love The..." on VH1

    Yeah, Cassidy played with Parker Stevenson in The Hardy Boys. That was I think before his Da Doo Run Run days.

    Leif Garrett was first in a dopey show called "Three For The Road". He was cute as hell in that. Then he got famous, sang some REALLY ****ty songs, and started doing drugs.

    And little girls who just copied what their older cousins liked.

    I suppose legally there is nothing wrong with that, but Donnie did go on to become a NYC Detective and Joey, well who knows whatever happened to him...

    I will say this, as a small kid Reagan had an almost father like air about him. I knew he cared.

    That doesn't mean there was not reason to be worried about her kids being shot at school then. Statistically kids were just as likely to be shot at school then as they are today.

    Statistically, you were just as likely to be victim of a terrorist attack in 1985 as you are today. So if you felt safer it was for no reason.
