    • Kirk: I did tell you about the dangers of mold, right? And Ed McMahon's dog?

      Ed McMahon, of "Johnny Carson's Tonight Show" and Star Search fame, was involved in one of the most publicly noted cases of toxic mold after water pipes in his house burst and the clean up crews were less than efficient. The severe mold problem which ensued was claimed in a subsequent lawsuit to have killed the family dog, Muffin, as well as sickened numerous family members and staff.
