One thing that the Telethon (at least locally here in New York) is famous for is that it had the distinction of being the stage for the first-ever live performance of "Sugar, Sugar" by the actual people who recorded it (i.e. Ron Dante and Toni Wine). Of course, it wasn't Archie, Betty, Veronica, etc.!!! I will post the YouTube link to it on Facebook later on.

I had pretty much decided to boycott the whole "Jerry's Kids" thing a few years ago when I read an interview with some aged-out "kids" who realized that pity didn't help adults who were looking for accommodations and respect. There's nothing more out of touch with disability rights than pity. Having a disabled kid who is almost hitting the young-adult stage the idea that the disabled disappear when they are not kids is very troubling.

The Cast

  • Wife
    Formerly GF. Self-explanatory, I think.
  • S & B
    Our former next-door neighbors. Their given names begin with neither S nor B, although the names that everyone calls them do begin with S and B. Go figure.
  • Wee One
    Wife's daughter, who is almost eighteen years old. An artist and aspiring actress who spends an inordinate amount of time getting physical therapy. She'll be starting college in the fall. We'll be in debtor's prison by the spring.
  • Daughter
    My 25-year-old daughter, a college graduate from SUNY New Paltz and working in the world of theater, making props. Currently her work can be seen on the campus of the University of North Carolina in Durham, with the Playmakers.
