Just dropped into my local deli and saw a sign up for this.

Somehow I don't think he will be dropping into the local morg.
Though I wonder if the scilons here will be using the visit as some kind of excuse for more regging?

Well, good for him. To quote the article;

Travolta will be the latest in a long list of high profile celebrities who have thrown their support behind Telethon, which has raised almost $100 million for research into children's diseases over the past 42 years.
You can't fault the guy for doing this stuff.
Goodonya, John. :thumbsup:

Very much doubt he'll go to the local org there - just found out they are down to only 10 or so staff - not the shining example for celebs to see! :duh:

You might be surprised what former celebs are willing to do. They'll happily perform in front of a group of only 5 people in a run-down location. A little attention and applause is all they need. :wink2:

The above hardly describes Travolta.

You're surely right. My comment was more of a tongue-in-cheek one, based on my work experience with some former national celebs who I accompanied. I didn't count the audience back then, but it was less than 20 people. Tough cookie for someone who once had sold nearly a million records. MrNobody doesn't care whether he plays for 5 or 500 people, but for former celebs who once made the masses boil, it's an extremely frustrating experience. I truly feel for them.
