    Well, I never knew that, he used to be on TV regularly in the 1970’s and I just thought he was the ugliest man I had ever seen. Noe feel I own him and ammend – so if your’e listening Marty, wherever you may be, “I’m Sorry, You were probably a really nice person!” LOL

    The statement about Graves Disease is very incorrect. It is Not caused by the Thyroid. Hyperactivity of the thyroid is caused by the disease. Graves is a autoimmune disorder the attacks among other things the Thyroid.
