With David Letterman preparing to put on his Velcro suit and be catapulted into the television sunset, here is a collection of snippets that are worth viewing:
My two disappointments with Dave: (1) he didn’t figure a way to assemble Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Dhani Harrison and Julian and Sean Lennon on stage together at the Ed Sullivan Theater for as much of a Beatles reunion as he could have ever had on either incarnation of his late night show (George and even John would have both been available for his morning show, but why should anyone believe that an NBC viewership that had given the network an excuse to kill off Hollywood Squares classic which made room for the Letterman morning show in the first place – and still didn’t watch it – would have bothered tuning in for even a true Beatles reunion?); and (2) he didn’t eviscerate trans-exterminationist TERFs the same way he took apart O’Reilly, Dubya and Darth.
