LOS ANGELES March 29, 2012 (AP)


Actor Warren Stevens, whose most memorable role was his portrayal of "Doc" Ostrow in the 1956 sci-fi movie "Forbidden Planet," has died in Los Angeles at 92.

Publicist Dale Olson says Stevens died Tuesday of respiratory failure complicated by lung disease at his Sherman Oaks home.

Stevens's career in stage, film and television spanned 60 years. He co-starred with Lou Diamond Phillips, Ernest Borgnine and Lee Majors in the 2004 western movie "The Trail to Hope Rose" on The Hallmark Channel.

His first role was a bit part in "The Frogmen" in 1951.

Besides "Forbidden Planet," he had a supporting role in 1954's "The Barefoot Contessa" with Humphrey Bogart.

Stevens was later a familiar face on TV, with guest appearances on such shows as "Bonanza," ''Star Trek" and "Combat."

Fermat's Room


One and one make five
Have you heard the news?
Everybody's asking who
is that man you've been seen with
and why I'm never out with you


Please tell me that you love me
Sort out this confusion
Say our love is still alive
For people must be jumping
to the wrong conclusion
that one and one make five


What I need right now
is to hear you say they got it wrong
that he's just a new friend
a perfectly innocent one


So, tell me that you love me
Sort out this confusion
Say our love is still alive
For people must be jumping
to the wrong conclusion
that one and one make five
People are assuming
'cause it's so confusing
that one and one make five


If one and one make two
I don't need to worry about you
but here where gossip and rumour thrive
one and one add up to three, four or five


One and one and one and one and one make five
(One and one make five)


Let's stay in tonight
and maybe disconnect the phone
The correct arithmetic
just the two of us at home


Oh, tell me that you love me
Sort out this confusion
Say our love is still alive
For people must be jumping
to the wrong conclusion
that one and one make five


Tell me that you love me
Sort out this confusion
Say our love is still alive
For people must be jumping
to the wrong conclusion
that one and one make five


If one and one make two
I don't need to worry about you
I don't need to worry about you

Nature v Nurture
Which is it?


Clearly, this is "learned behaviour." It's not just the one-finger salute, but the look on the kid's face, the look in his eyes. It's everything.

I don't know who or what to be more frightened of: the kid when he grows up, or the parents and/or people he's been around to "learn" this.

Like a puzzle, all the pieces here fit.

And I don't like what I see.
