Letterman to be among Kennedy honorees

Source: Star Tribune


David Letterman is among this year's Kennedy Center Honorees, CBS announced Wednesday. The late-night veteran will be feted alongside actor Dustin Hoffman, bluesman Buddy Guy, ballet dancer Natalia Makarova and rock group Led Zeppelin at the 35th Annual Kennedy Center Honors, at the gala, broadcast on CBS on Dec. 26. "With their extraordinary talent, creativity and tenacity, the seven 2012 Kennedy Center Honorees have contributed significantly to the cultural life of our nation and the world," said Kennedy Center Chairman David M. Rubenstein. He praised Letterman as "one of the most influential personalities in the history of television, entertaining an entire generation of late-night viewers with his unconventional wit and charm." Letterman joins a short and rarefied list of comedians who've received the honor, including Carol Burnett, Steve Martin, Bob Hope and Johnny Carson.

3. Who cares?

It was probably some awful joke about Bill Clinton 15 years too late. Leno has never been funny.

4. Nice way to thank a Loyal supporter of the President.

David has been very kind to the President and his wife. He has been a steadfast friend who gives the President a medium to reach Young Americans.

8. As a lifelong Zep fan, I agree it's cool, but

honestly, why are they being honored?

R&R hall of fame? Sure.
Kennedy center? Not sure.
