Dick Clark dies
But I'll remember Dick Clark mostly for his guest appearance in Michael Moore's "Bowling for Colombine," in which the director chased him down to ask him about his franchise of restaurants that employed a woman who was forced to work two jobs, take a bus hours to work, who still could not afford a safe environment for her kindergarten-aged son, who shot a little girl at his Flint-area school.
The restaurant was in Auburn Hills' Great Lakes Crossing. Moore tracked Clark down somewhere in Hollywood. The encounter was kinda funny.
Never a fan of American Bandstand nor New Years' Night, I still know the value of what Clark brought to the worlds of TV and music.
