Fall On Your Own Sword

I've never watched all that much late night television; I'm either asleep or out doing something productive like drinking. But I watch Letterman from time to time and truly enjoyed when Anne Heche was on, giving him hell about being married and calling her ex "a lazy-ass." A lot of people got their collective panties in a wad over her statement, but come on -- haven't we all been there? A little too honest in the company of many? And what is humor if not hostility? Like Lenny Bruce said about the crucifixion, It was just a party that got out of hand.

Well, Dave himself has had to turn his wit upon himself, fall on his own sword, and has come out funnier than ever. For those living under big rocks, he's being blackmailed about having sex with some of his staff. Not exactly a shocker to me -- here's a man who waited nearly twenty years to get married to the mother of his child. And has a lot of money. And power. He also looks like a thin version of one of my exes. Evil. But still funny despite our assessments of his conduct as moral or not. Columnists are predicting he will alienate women. Really? I kind of doubt it. If we've put up with him for this long, much like his long suffering wife, we'll probably see him through this storm.

It's almost funny to me that he has to come clean about it publicly as though he's a Senator or Billy Graham. Strange world...

I will leave Letterman to his moral shortcomings if he will leave me to my mine.

I never really watched Letterman. Makes no difference to me what he's done. It's between him and the folks involved is how I see it.

I used to watch his show religously but now that I'm old, I can't stay awake that late. Too bad because he's still a cultural touchstone.

Sometimes I feel like women can endure anything. Except being happy.

Within the context of school activiities, baseball, etc. his son has earned a reputation for being "strange". Another word which could be used is "disturbed".
I'm afraid one day he's going to "snap".
Soldier has been told in no uncertain terms to "keep your son away from my child".
They tell me some of these concerned parents have called Child Protective Services regarding this issue.
Dad has showed his 7 year old son hard pornography in an attempt to ensure he doesn't become gay. Ironically, now the boy has a fascination with penis. Appropriate, because they say dad gets excited with trannys::::He wants to lift her skirt and fondle her penis.
On the train I saw a man with three "bitches":::He had a transsexual harem. Dad would have got so jelous.
He sure married the right girl.
Dad intends to take the boy to see a prostitute.
They say the son wants the father dead.
Parenting classes would be in order. And a little psychoanalysis.
The Gods tested his attraction to transsexuals by sending people by, likely during the period where he felt he had to prove he was a "real man", ironically.
He's Godless and immoral, and his son may grow to be a monster because of it.
