‘Mighty Ducks’ Star Arrested

Lester

By Shel Silverstein

Lester was given a magic wish
By the goblin who lives in the banyan tree,
And with his wish he wished for two more wishes-
So now instead of just one wish, he cleverly had three.
And with each one of these
He simply wished for three more wishes,
Which gave him three old wishes, plus nine new.
And with each of these twelve
He slyly wished for three more wishes,
Which added up to forty-six -- or is it fifty-two?
Well anyway, he used each wish
To wish for wishes 'til he had
Five billion, seven million, eighteen thousand thirty-four.
And then he spread them on the ground
And clapped his hands and danced around
And skipped and sang, and then sat down
And wished for more.
And more...and more...they multiplied
While other people smiled and cried
And loved and reached and touched and felt.
Lester sat amid his wealth
Stacked mountain-high like stacks of gold,
Sat and counted -- and grew old.
And then one Thursday night they found him
Dead -- with his wishes piled around him.
And they counted the lot and found that not
A single one was missing.
All shiny and new -- here, take a few
And think of Lester as you do.
In a world of apples and kisses and shoes
He wasted his wishes on wishing.

Shaun Weiss, the former ‘Mighty Ducks’ child star was arrested back in August.  His police mugshot showed a completely unrecognizable man who looked rather ill. Weiss believed that he had rock bottom, and hoped to make a strong come back…

 

After the arrest, Weiss revealed on Facebook that he was in fact in danger in a heartbreaking post about his drug addiction, and about how he feels as though the incredible support and love from fans has renewed his spirit.

 

However, it seems as though his attempts to improve his life have not been going so well. Apparently, Weiss was arrested once again in November for shoplifting from A Rite Aid in Los Angeles.  He is reported to have arrested previously for public intoxication, and now he faces a theft charge.

 

Hopefully Weiss manages to get himself back on track and stop this destructive path while he’s at it, and that the strength and laughter that the Mighty Ducks gave to others during tough times, can be found by Weiss too….
