A few days ago, I wrote about the devolution of public morality from the death of Michael Jackson to the death of Ted Kennedy to the arrest of Roman Polanski.
I ended by asking, "What's next?" Today, we found out.
"Late-night host David Letterman acknowledged on Thursday's show that he had sexual relationships with female employees and that someone tried to extort $2 million from him over the affairs. CBS says an employee has been charged with attempted grand larceny in the case."
It's a tale of "sexual relationships" (plural) with "female employees" (plural), and Letterman's telling of the story got a big laugh on his show.
I guess if he's a big enough television star, an older married man is allowed to establish a harem among his staff at work.
You do remember that this is the guy who was offended by Palin's daughter's promiscuity.
