THE LATE SHOW WITH DAVID LETTERMAN was not all laughs last night...he had something on his mind and said so. What was the David Letterman apology for? He wanted, or was commanded to apologize to Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, and her daughters for his shocking jokes about Sarah Palin's family last week. He did seem earnest in the apology, though, even after a war of words in his own defense. A comedian can easily find himself in trouble for his looseness and freedom in expressing a point of view or to get a laugh. And the David Letterman apology was the final result of this comedian’s freedom of choice. He promised to be more careful in the future but we know David Letterman, he dances to his own comedic tune. Well, that’s the life of a daring “funnyman”, and how we love them.
