Recently David Letterman voiced a proposal to have I-465 here in Indianapolis named after him. This idea was offensive to me so I wrote to our local news station, WISH TV, to voice my opinion. I said: "In regards to David Letterman's request to have I-465 named after him, I say no! Not only that, I say hell no! That gapped tooth, east coast socialist, clinton democrat doesn't deserve to have a goat trail named after him, let alone an interstate highway." Mike Ahern, the local news anchor, read most of my response on the "Mike's Mailbag" portion of the Thursday 6:00 news. I would like to state here and now that I apologize to anyone with gaps in their teeth. I should have left that part out. Some of you may remember Letterman's opening one of his shows with a rousing pep session for clinton before the 1996 election. He said something like, "bill clinton is gonna kick Bob Dole's butt." His audience cheered. (I know bill clinton isn't capitalized. I can't bring myself to do it.)

I saw the show the other night when he called the mayor. I took the whole think as being a joke or a stunt for ha ha's Am I wrong? This is what the man does for a living.

Hey rn45, you don't need to capitalize Bubba's last name - just spell it correctly: [b]Klinton[/b]. [;)] CMOS

I'm a native of Indianapolis and I didn't like the idea. The whole time while he was in New York I never remember him doing anything for the city. If we have to name I-465 after someone I would rather it be Larry Bird or someone who has done good things for the city.

He should just become a senator. Robert Byrd from WV can tell you it's easy to have taxpayers pay for a highway and have them put [i]your[/i] name on it.

How about John Dillinger or Jim Davis?
