A couple of days ago, I posted about David Letterman returning to his (and my) alma matre, Ball State University. Then he was on Oprah. Did you see it? Dave's glasses fogged up as soon as he sat down. Oprah even pointed it out. Do you know he went 21 minutes into the show, including commercial breaks, before someone squeegied his glasses? For Pete's sake ... two of the biggest names in showbiz and no one's got a Kleenex to spare this man? It drove me crazy.
And now about Jay Leno. I have a co-worker whose sister-in-law has been a fan for many years. One night, Jay made a joke about Christian believers that this sister-in-law thought crossed the boundary between good-natured funnin' and disrespectful insultin'. She wrote a letter. (Yes, to Jay Leno.) One day, at her place of business, the phone rang, and the caller claimed to be Jay Leno and wanted to talk to the sister-in-law. She was at home. Caller was given the home number. Caller called sister-in-law at home. It was indeed Jay Leno. Jay Leno apologized for "going too far" with the joke. Wow.
Just curious, who do you like to watch late at night, Jay or Dave?
If you are young and cool, you would have answered, "Conan."
If you are old and uncool like me, you would say, "Raymond Burr: Perry Mason Marathon on the Hallmark Channel."
