John F. Kerry's plastic surgery

That awful Herman Munster college picture of Kerry that the Boston Globe maliciously used yesterday reminded one reader:

It has never been well reported but Kerry had a jaw reduction operation sometime in the late 70's or early 80's just before his run for U.S. Senate. I have been in his presence before, and after the surgery, it is quite a noticeable difference, and improvement...

I'm not a big fan of plastic surgery, but it's perfectly reasonable for people with odd facial features that cause other people to make fun of them to get them fixed.

I wonder if Kerry suffered from a mild case of the pituitary problem called acromegaly that causes bones to keep growing. Famous acromegalics include Gheorghe Muresan, the tallest player in NBA history, and Primo Carnera, the largest heavyweight boxing champ.
