    I received an email from "The Official David Cassidy Newsletter 2007" informing readers that
    Who else is scheduled to appear on the telethon and when are they scheduled to perform?

    I imagine that many of you are on email lists that might mention an appearance on the telethon that we might now know about otherwise.

    All these years, all those millions, and they still don't have a cure for M.D.?

    I want my money back.

    Anyone else watching the telethon? I think Jerry is finally "loosing" it. He seems to be very confused at times. I think Ed is helping Jerry cover for this by making his conversations with Jerry look like some kind of comedy "act". I also thought Jerry appeared to be out of breath a lot, and was sitting a lot.

    It could be an act, since we all know what a goof Jerry has always been, but it looks like his floor director is always having to correct him or tell him what to do. I hope what I'm seeing is just an act, and just a mis-interpretation on my part.

    God bless Jerry for all the tireless work he's done to raise money for the MDA and "his" kids.

    In the opening shot, was that really Jerry sky diving?

    According to www.imdb.com, he was born 3/16/26 so you are right, 81.

    I hope that at age 81, I have accomplished only a small portion of what Jerry Lewis has. Keep up the good work. :up:

    Love him or hate him, he's raised a ton of money over the years, and given a lot of his time:

    "Nationally, the 2007 telethon also raised a record amount, $63,759,478 in contributions and pledges, according to a news release from MDA officials."

    All well and good, but how much of that has actually been spent for research or services?
