Late Show Remote...
Our normal route was up 8th to 53rd. When we got to 53rd, we found
the street blocked off. There was something going on with contestants from the
New York Marathon that was going to happen in 2 days. Upon walking further, we
find itís not really people from the Marathon, but staffers from the Late Show
in running gear, a cab with a running number and a camera filming. We proceed to
watch, after getting out of the camera shot to the south side of the street. Pat,
Kenny, Bill, director Jerry Foley and a few other stage people were around.
Writer Steve Young was there and we talked his ear off for quite a while. The
cab was trying to take over the runners as they ran up the street. The street
was littered with white water cups that Pat & Kenny
had thrown out and
stepped on. They stepped on them because the wind would keep blowing them out of
the street and into the gutter. They would get them swept out again,the scene
was reset and the cups would blow back to the gutter.
showed us a runnerís label that was another jokeÖsomething like
there were so
runners that they had one that was number
Yeah, over 19 septillion entered. After,
the Late Show team left the area in better shape
than it had been all week.

Anybody may visit and post to the group.
(Access it at Google .) It is generally a number of
fans of David Letterman
& anything "Dave."
The group does focus on the Late Show for the most
part. There are members that have made names for themselves, for various
reasons. We saw a number of different signs and objects that reminded us of
some of the group and of material on the LS.
