    I've always loved Dave.
    Well there was that time... U know the affair thing I didn't like his actions.

    But, as a comedian, I think he's brilliant. I watched last night and thought his jokes were priceless!

    I agree, Kimberly. I think he's amazing and absolutely hilarious! I say way to go at not allowing himself to be pushed around.

    Letterman is a hoot. He is taking a stand for his freedom of speech. I admire him standing up to those bullying him.
