As we watch the news unfold about David Letterman I keep thinking he didn't do anything wrong. He is an innocent victim here. I've always thought Letterman was a rather private person. This must be rather embarrassing for him. Whose business is it anyway that society has to go snooping into the personal business of celebrities. Isn't what he did normal for a guy to do? He was single at the time the girls that he met were girls that worked with him. So he did what he did so what? If you spend all your time working, where else are you going to meet anybody. Are there some sort of laws that say you can't have relationships with co-workers? The whole thing sounds so stupid. I don't think it's fair when people become celebrities their whole world becomes an open book. What a nerve the other fellow had who would even come up with this dumb idea to blackmail him. Blackmail him for what? Being a normal red blooded American Male? With that attitude everybody would start blackmailing everybody for discussions over the water cooler. Better watch those Christmas parties. This whole situation is stupid to me.

Yes I totally agree with you. What is the big deal its not like this was happening after he was married. This was before even his son was born and his son will be 6 in a couple of weeks. So I don't understand how this guy really thought that David Letterman was going to let him walk away with a legimate 2 million dollar check. He is really a stupid guy and I'm happy he was arrested. Another dumb criminal out of touch with reality.

I agree with you totally imagine going back over six years. Isn't there a statute of limitations, or something like that?

Six years or 10 years it was all with consenting adults. What is the big deal it doesn't matter. What matter if these people were married then its bad. There are so many married people having affairs at the work place its ridiulous. He came forward and told his story of someone blackmailing him. The guy was an idiot.

You have a point sallysue. I also agree. But since Letterman is public figure, the incident was inevitable. I mean, that this incident was made known to public. I appreciate Letterman because he was very honest when he acknowledged that he was afraid and he is trying to protect his family and the women he had relationship with. That I think is the most important.

Yes, he is to be commended in not bringing the girls name forward. There was nothing wrong with what he did so why should he have to kiss and tell. When your little don't your parents tell you not to kiss and tell, so why should he even mention it. But, my question is what's wrong with what he did? When the world is in a state of turmoil the news have to go after a guy doing a guy thing. It's really a shame that when a person becomes a public figure they loose their personal existence. What a terrible thing to have to do to follow his art. If he was in a field that wasn't in the public eye it would be so what there's an office romance, big deal. Isn't that what's going on here?

For one he is basically the boss of the show or at least has a lot of power there. Many assistants and producers of such shows are just starting their careers and are fairly young and some are even interns, so he is in a position of great power over them and could a large influence on their career. Very few of the women, if any, working on the show would be his equal and if it came down to them losing their jobs or him, it would be them. Sure the blackmail is wrong but what he was doing was too, especially since it apparently was with many women.

Ya, but we don't know if he did anything wrong. He might be the innocent victim here. I still think there's something to be said innocent until proven guilty.
