I am so saddened by the news of the loss of Mark Lester. He was truly magical and full of enthusiasm when sharing Pleasanton history with school children. This truly heartbreaking news for Mark's family and all of us who had the pleasure of listening to any of Mark's lively presentations. He will be greatly missed!

According to the AP news a British tabloid reported Saturday that the godfather of Michael Jackson's three children claims to be the father of the singer's daughter Paris. The newspaper also quotes Lester, is a 51-year-old former child star known for his lead role in the 1968 movie version of the state show "Oliver!" as saying he's willing to take a paternity test.In a video interview with Lester broadcast on the News of the World Web site, Lester said he donated his sperm at a London clinic. He said Jackson was married to Debbie Rowe at the time. If you are interested to know more about Mark Lester I have collected some good sites and articles related to him (Photos, Videos, latest news coverage etc.,). Check the link below.

The post by Sri regarding the Mark Lester involved in the Michael Jackson paternity quandary should be discredited. It is my hope that you are not implying that Mark Lester, the education director for the Museum on Main, and Mark Lester, the former child star of Oliver and godfather to Michael Jackson's children, are one and the same. If so, shame on you, Sri, for posting such misleading debauchery, and, if not, shame on you for not clarifying your message to point out the similarity in names only.

Jenny - I noticed the same error and reported objectionable content to the PW. Sri is misinformed. PW -- Would you consider deleting all 3 of these references to the Sri's post about the other Mark Lester (without posting the "this comment removed due to...." tags) so that this page can serve as a memorial? Thanks.
