Heartthrob Times

Little boys grow up. Even the cutest. Often they become fathers, but rarely do they ever live up to the dreams as fathers/husbands that little girls have about them.

All that blather is inspired by this week's objet d'eBay, a 1972 comic book featuring one-time heartthrob David Cassidy. Cassidy, the son of comic Jack Cassidy, is also the half-brother of Shaun, the man behind his current comeback vehicle, the family affaired Ruby and the Rockits. On the show he plays an estranged father and faded rocker, perhaps not that far from his real life as star of the county fair circuit and father of two (from three marriages), son, Beau Devin Cassidy and daughter/actress Katie Cassidy.
