Passing into history. No more. Jerry Lewis will no longer be the spokesman. No reason given. How sad...all my life, there has been Jerrys Kids. A true american icon. Yes, there will still a MSD Telethon just no longer with Jerry Lewis. Seems like I've watched that every year since time began. I liked the Dean Martin-Jerry Lewis movies. Some Dean Martin songs, but most of all I have a great respect for Jerry Lewis and "his" telethon. I don't think there was ever a reason given as to why Jerry Lewis gave so much to this cause. But I know that whatever the reason, Jerry Lewis gave so much to Muscular Dystrophy.
