I am not condonning what this man did. Letterman you were a slut -took his girlfriend and now you want 6 months in prison because he was brokenhearted and acted wrong. lettermen if you were the only thing on TV I would never and never will watch YOU.The community service and fine is enough, Speak up Letterman and look at what you did not what he did!
