I guess this shouldn't come as too big a surprise, it would seem that the MDA Telethon that takes place on Labor Day is no more. I found this out on the news yesterday. The reason I said this wasn't a surprise is because in the past few years the MDA Telethon or what there was of it started to be phased out. Three years ago it was cut down to six hours two years later four hours and more of a concert then anything else, last year only a few hours. Now comes word there won't even be that this year, apparently the organization has discovered that they can make money all year long online throgh their website and social media. I guess I can undestand their reasoning but its still kind of hard to accept. I grew up as part of a generation that thought of this Telethon as an annual Labor Day tradition. It was part of Labor Day itself and now its no longer there.
