did anyone see this? I think Rather would pull the trigger on Bin Laden if he could.

I stopped watching after the first commercial break with Rather. I figured I wasn't going to be getting what I expect from the show.
It's in an awkward position. Attempts at comedy will be perceived as insensitive.
Elsewhere, I saw a Tommy Hilfiger faux-sweater in R.W.B. (for women) for only $89. Is this exploitation?

That was a couragous display by both Letterman & Rather. There some lighthearted moments with Regis

Only if it is not what the market will bear. Or if T says so. :wink:

I'm awaiting her protest.
What is a faux-sweater? There is faux-fur, faux-pearls, faux-pas... I must not be into fashion. A sweater is a sweater, regardless of material. Do you mean faux-wool?

That's what it's called. It's sweater material, but has no sleeves.
On a side note: Does anyone make short-sleeved sweatshirts anymore? I had one for the longest time, simply because I couldn't replace it. It's gone now, still no replacement. I like to have good arm range (for throwing softballs or footballs), but stay warm on cooler, (rare) non-sunny days. And I'd rather not pay for a full-sleeved sweatshirt only to cut the sleeves off.
Any suggestions? Besides the obvious "Stay on topic!"
DTNF, you could get a regular sweatshirt and cut off the sleeves. I doubt if a short-sleeved version would be cheaper anyway. (Or send it to me and I'll cut them off for you.)

JMO beat me to the punch. But, in addition, you could then call the sleeves authentic 80s leg warmers and sell them on EBAY for $89.

I took my own advice, did a Yahoo! shopping search.
I hope Yahoo! Doesn't go out of business anytime soon. Great search service.
A short-sleeve sweatshirt. A brilliant idea, but you can't find them. Well, search no more. This terrific 95% cotton 5% poly (on rib trim only) sweatshirt is a crewneck short sleeve with ribbed waistband and sleeves. A very generous cut manufactured with the greatest of care and quality. This is our exclusive. Try as you may you won't find a short sleeve sweatshirt anywhere but here. The garment is an unbelievable 13 ounces per square yard. This is truly the best crewneck sweatshirt on the market today. That's over 2 ounces heavier than any sweatshirt we've ever heard of.
Camber is the manufacturer and they offer a rainbow of colors: White, Ash Gray, Navy, Black and Royal. Men's sizes are S, M, L, XL and XXL (+ $7.50). The Ultimate Short Sleeve Sweatshirt by Camber. Ultimate is king.
$39 for other sizes. This place, sweatshirt-expresse.com, is in Southampton, NY. I'm thinking that's a bit much.
Nordstrom has a bunch of them online as well, but they're women's styles.

Letterman should send that guy that keeps beating-up Alan Calter and Rupert Gee after Bin Laden next!
09-18-2001, 04:25 PM
Alan Carter and Rupert Gee?
09-18-2001, 05:43 PM
Yes, the announcer-dude and the deli owner.
Letterman's been having some thug come in and "beat" these two for no reason. It'd be a funny skit (at some point, not yet) to have that guy "go after" Bin Laden!

My opinion of Rather went down another notch. I know that reporters are human, but I expect them to make an effort to keep there own feelings from overwhelming the story.
