Thanks for a great article. I watched the show with Warren Zevon, and couldn’t break away. I have been a fan of Mr. Letterman for decades, enjoying his skill as a interviewer and also as a creative comedian. He is certainly the best in the business in both categories.
Mr. Zevon shows similar high skill levels in his music as well as his own comedic mind. It was refreshing to see Mr. Letterman show his friendship and appreciation to Mr. Zevon, and allow Mr. Zevon the opportunity to show his both to Letterman and to his music fans everywhere.
I can’t imagine any other TV personalities who could match Mr. Letterman’s ability to do a program like that. Most wouldn’t even try, or their producers wouldn’t let them (wisely).
Mr. Zevon’s music will live for a long time.p>Regards, br> — Richard Renken /p>
This article brought just the right light on that incredible Farewell: Warren Zevon Late Night Show. Warren Zevon is not on my play list. David Letterman is. I was deeply moved by the courage both of these guys displayed on that program. Paul Beston captured in words better than I could explain what a truly amazing event this show was. It was a first in TV in my experience and it left a lasting impact on me.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
