Thought of the Day #257 - Letterman

While watching David Letterman tell his tale of extortion for sexual
affairs, I felt uncomfortable with the laughter from the audience. It
was as if they couldn't accept that he would tell a serious story. It
made me feel really sad for Letterman. Admitting the potentially
embarrassing information on TV was smart to ward off others who may come
forward with a similar plan to garner money from him, but being unable
to tell the tale without snickering from the audience must have been
frustratingly unnerving.
