Willard Scott and Ronald (McDonald)

Did you know that Willard Scott (the weatherman) was the first Ronald McDonald? He even co-created Ronald McDonald....whose costume has come a long way (there is a photo on the Wikipedia page I just linked to). I have tried to imagine what Ronald McDonald would be like if he wasn't fired...and cannot.

I was surprised they didn't mention his struggle with panic attacks in the Wikipedia article. Willard Scott was one of the first celebrities to talk about his mental problems publicly.

I didn't know about his struggles with panic attacks. Good for him....mental problems are an illness just like any other illness. There is such a stigma against mental problems in much of Western society.
