to paraphrase bruce willis in "pulp fiction", "ed's dead baby... ed's dead." so that leaves us with the big question... who the hell replaces ed as jerry's "right hand man" on the annual mda telethon this year?
although i think the guy is as annoyingly untalented as ed was, i say the rightful heir apparent has to be tony orlando. he's been hosting the new york feed for many years and has certainly paid his mda dues. like him (which i don't) or not, he can feign over-the top enthusiasm or somber-seriousness with the best of 'em, and he can always pull a song (which he wrote) out of his ass to get the pledges rolling in as the show is winding down and they need to better last years total.
so... got somebody better? go ahead... take your best shot.
