Is it time to forgive Letterman?

I was so disappointed in Letterman when he cheated on his wife in such a caddish way that I stopped watching the show for a year I was raised in a strict Jewish household, though I am not as strict as the previous generation I still believe in the sanctity of vows, children and family. But you know, having been a long time (over 20 years ) fan of the show, I did see him apologize to his wife his show, and Regis; and vow to repair his relationship. And it looks like, at least to the naked eye. He speaks lovingly of his family now; and his wife is still with him. And he made no excuses for his behaviour. Perhaps if his wife could forgive him so shoud we?

What was Leterman thinking???? What is wrong with CBS????

Compare Letterman to Spitzer? Same, same. Both married, both broke covenant. Letterman in an adult relationship??? Dude he's married!!!! And as to being an adult he's shown by his behavior and vacant apology to still be in puberty.

10/4/09 Interesting to hear this now, after Mr. Letterman has just admitted to having numerous affairs w/his staffers, while in a "committed" relationship w/his then unmarried lover, mother of his child... Wrong is wrong! What a hypocrit Mr. Letterman is...

Come on, stop influencing the belief that Jews complain about everything. There was nothing wrong with what Letterman said, our 1st amendment says so, so if you think this is morally wrong then don't watch, and don't let your kids watch. But don't condemn society for watching if they find it funny. Stick to your own business, and stop influencing hatred about Jews, I honestly believe you are detrimental to our religion. Besides, isn't this Lashon Hara?
