Farewell to a Species

Sad news this week as we learned that the last Munchkin has died.

They will be remembered as a proud people who weathered oppression and scandal. They were diverse. They were tough.

In a time when we humans focus on our relationship with Hobbits, and Oompa-Loompas publicly disgrace themselves, let us celebrate these kindly little folk, and the donut holes named after them.

One thought on “Farewell to a Species”

  1. Mickey Carroll was not the last Munchkin.  There are still a few, including Meinhardt Raabe, who portrayed the Coronor and published the book <a href=”http://www.sfsite.com/~silverag/raabe.html”>Memories of a Munchkin</a> in 2005. Jerry Maren is also still alive (the center Lollypop Guild member) and, I believe, there are four other Munchkins still with us.
