In case you were wondering about David Letterman...

October 26, 2009 |  3:20 pm

David Letterman on CBS New York magazine has delivered a detailed piece chronicling David Letterman's recent struggles and the "legendary self-loathing" that led up to it all -- and apparently dictated how he would handle things once allegations of blackmail and infidelity were made public.

Maybe save this one for lunch, because it's rather meaty (with a little bit of profanity along the way, mind you), but it's a good read whether or not you like David Letterman. It's not so much that there's ground-breaking, gasp-inducing scoop, but rather that the mag strings together story to date and slops on a heaping helping of context. Just the thing if you've been asking yourself, "How in the world could he screw up like that?" Or even, "Wait, Letterman ... did ... wha...??"

Hat tip to the Morning Fix on the Company Town blog, which always has an eye open behind the entertainment scenes.
