Gangster with Graves' Disease

Jimmy Breslin's new book "The Good Rat" tells the story that Salvatore "The Bull" Gravano developed Graves'Disease. He became quite sick with hyperthyroid symptoms, after ratting out mob boss John Gotti. He had pulled out his hair, and left a head that was bald and pink.Folds of flesh hung around his eyes.Because Mr.Breslin feels politicians are as crooked as mobsters, he would not be surprised that the first President Bush had Graves' disease during the first Gulf War.
