Jerry Lewis was tossed out of MDA without an explanation to the American public.  However, WWE muscles are looming large on the front page of the MDA site.  Entertainment in the USA has taken on a pro-wrestling and reality show mentality that goes beyond entertainment and hits a lowest common denominator.  Most of pro-wrestling and reality TV is not good, but the not-good is the part that even our research scientists now want to put forth to the American public in order to get their donations. 

During Jerry’s time as MDA honorary chairman, from 1952 – 2011, over $2 Billion were raised for MDA research, freeing MDA from a lack of government funding.  Tossing out Jerry Lewis at this point 30 days before the 2011 Telethon, without an explanation, will prove to be a bad move.

Beginning 9/4/2011, the MDA Telethon became a 6-hour entertainment show. 6PM to Midnight on the East Coast. Labor Day Weekend? People won’t get home until after Midnight Sunday.

Some event or action caused MDA to dismiss Jerry Lewis before his last scheduled Telethon, which would have put him at 60 years’ total service to MDA.  How many of us will continue to support MDA? —  Has the government relegated MDA to a non-essential disease fighting organization?
