April 1951: Unveiled a plan to sell advertising space on signs held by midgets who would be flown on kites over Central Park. One of the participating midgets was a 50-year-old grandmother. He claimed that the stunt would not only create good publicity for his clients, but would also provide employment for out-of-work midgets. However, when he showed up in Central Park, the police refused to allow him to carry out his plan, citing safety concerns. This led Moran to exclaim, "It's a sad day for American capitalism when a man can't fly a midget on a kite over Central Park." He next tried to carry out his plan in Van Courtland park in the Bronx, but authorities there also denied him permission.
