We read rumors that Huey Long made an appointment to get goat glands but was assassinated in 1935 before he got them, so we didn’t invent the idea of Long being associated with Brinkley in some way. However, we’ve never seen any reference to his actually having done so, so we’re stretching here to make it seem like Brinkley had some famous patients vouching for him. Why? Because the “celebrity endorsement” is a key trick used by quacks; Brinkley did it, and we’re doing it too. (See also: note 161¬†on another Huey Long connection.)
