Wasn’t it just Monday? And we have a holiday weekend coming up?
For many years, this upcoming weekend meant one thing, Jerry Lewis. You knew he was an a-hole in real life (and he was sort of an a-hole at times on the telethon) but you watched anyway because you wanted to see if anyone you knew calling in with a pledge. Sometimes I pledged money just to see my name on the screen.
Aside from that and no matter what you thought of him, Jerry Lewis did incredible work for MDA and I have always thought it was awful they way it all came to an end. When I was growing up, he was Labor Day and in my mind, he always will be.
