And today they have the "Just for 19 cents a day" commercials airing all the time. No need for a telethon.

Just curious as to how much money was embezzled during the years and who's pockets were filled.

There’s been a few times that I watched the telethon and it seemed like Lewis was faking his crying (remember he was an actor).

In most of Lewis’s comedy movies he always made fun of those who were challenged. I guess back then no one cared.
