YAKIMA, WA—According to frustrated family sources, 49-year-old Gene Dawson sleeps like a baby, waking up every few hours and needing to be held and soothed before he can fall back asleep. "I'll put him down after Leno most nights, but he's up two hours later because he wants to be fed again," Dawson's wife, Joyce, told reporters Tuesday. "If I'm lucky, I'll give him his bottle and he'll pass right out for the rest of the night. Usually, though, I'm up till dawn trying to get him to stop crying." At press time, Dawson was finally sleeping soundly and had begun to soil his pajamas.
