Lasers all over the place, you can get them at Radio shack, Walmart...anywhere.

Is it any surprise that a lazer would eventually fall into the hands of an irresponsible or unqualified individual?

It is time we seriously consider a rational lazer-control policy for our nation.

Looks nothing like his grandfather, but obviously trying (poorly) to resemble James Dean.

>>> Clark James Gable, 22, the only grandson of legendary actor Clark Gable

This may be Gable’s only grandson, but he has two great-grandsons by way of his affair with Loretta Young. Their illegitimate daughter Judy gave birth to a daughter who in turn had the two boys.

Just looked him up elsewhere and he looks there more like his grandmother, Loretta Young.

This is no small matter.

The Danger of Green Laser Pointers

I don't want the pilots of an aircraft blinded. These fools with lasers need to be dealt with.

Gable was the “King of Hollywood” when he enlisted as a private during WWII; I don’t think he would be very proud of his grandson.

Father, John Clark Gable

I'm just a lucky slob from Ohio who happened to be in the right place at the right time.

That's quite a coincidence since his grandmother was Kay Spreckles, Clark Gable's fifth wife.

You’re kidding. I didn’t know that. I thought Gable had the one daughter with Loretta Young and this guy was the daughter’s offspring. Who is Kay Sprecles? Thanks.

As for Clark Gable...what a dream. Just looking at him there makes me sigh. Miss that guy and I wasn’t even part of those years.

We just have to make more men like that.

Kathleen "Kay" Gable was a former model and actress who met Clark in 1944 during her troubled marriage to sugar heir, Adolf Spreckles. They happily reunited a decade later and were married in July 1955. He became an enthusiastic stepfather to her son and daughter, and they were expecting their first child together when he died. Four months later, Kay gave birth to their son, John Clark Gable. When she passed away 23 years after Clark she was interred two spaces over and one row down from her husband.

Gable just completed filming the lead role in a thriller called "Looking for Clara" in Italy in June, Davis said.

On Thursday, he will return to an eight-week acting school program at the New York Film Academy in Los Angeles, Davis said. Before becoming an actor a year ago, Gable was working at a pet store in Agora Hills, California, unloading dog food for $9 an hour and working 56 hours a week, Davis said.

I dunno, quarter mill bail seems excessive.
