New York now leads the world's great cities in the number of people around whom you shouldn't make a sudden move.
USA Today has come out with a new survey - apparently, three out of every four people make up 75 of the population.
Quotes from the news wire:
I would just like to say,' Don, it's Dave. Remember me ? I want to talk to Donald Trump.' Because I now don't know which is the real Donald Trump, and if the Donald Trump that I was talking to [ back then ] was the real Donald Trump, how do you get to be the guy Donald Trump is now ? politics notwithstanding -- let's just say everything is great and he's done a great job, but he still behaves the way he behaves -- who behaves like that ?!
It just seemed like, OK, well, here’s somebody who had an intimate relationship with somebody he shouldn’t have had an intimate relationship with. And I always said, ‘Well, who hasn’t?’ to myself. But then, when I was able to see from the epicenter, the ripples, I thought, yeah, they could have fired me. But they didn’t. So I owe them that.
But Letterman’s view of The Donald has since shifted dramatically. I can remember David Letterman doing an impression, behind a podium, of a reporter for The New York Times who has a congenital disorder.

I used to say, every day, ‘I am so sick and tired of shaving.’ … And I just thought, the first thing I will do when I am not on TV is stop shaving. And everybody hates it. My wife hates it. My son hates it. But it’s interesting. I’ve kind of developed a real creepy look with it that I’m sort of enjoying. And I can tell that people are off-put by it. And the more people implore me to shave, the stronger my resolve is to not shave.
I’m like the idiots who always used to come up to me—and I knew they were lying…. They’d say, ‘Yeah, well, geez I can’t stay up late enough to watch your show,’ and I’d think, you’re lying, you’re just lying. But I’m like that guy now. I can’t stay up late enough to watch TV. I like to be in bed right around 10. Anything that happens after 10, I’m not there.
We were in some helicopters. What we didn’t know was, we were north of the invasion. We were the northernmost Americans in Iraq, we were going to drop some bridge portions across the Euphrates so the Third Infantry could cross on them. Two of the four helicopters were hit, by ground fire, including the one I was in, RPG and AK-47.
