SharonA BS: David Letterman. Late night TV hero... (116* d) RE: BS: David Letterman. Late night TV hero... 05 Oct 09

I agree with everything Crow Sister has said here, except the part about not giving a flying squirrel, when all's said and done, about a talk show host's peccadillos. If the sex he had was a result of his sexual harrassment of his subordinates, then I think it does matter and I think that his behavior and his attempts to make light of it are abhorrent.

I'm upset that Letterman's audience laughed at parts of his confession. If the scenario of a multimillionaire boss seducing the more starry-eyed members of his staff (or perhaps pressuring them into having sex with him under threat of dismissal/pay-cut/perk-cut) is considered funny in this day and age, we are not as culturally advanced -- or even as evolved -- as we'd like to think we are. I can hope that the audience laughed because someone was holding up a sign instructing them to do so but, if that's the case, then truly all we like sheep are led astray.

Letterman is no hero in my book. The sooner he's off the air, the better, as far as I'm concerned.
