Did anyone not notice that David Letterman has quit?
The king of late night's celebration of his retirement seemed to go on for weeks, although the extent of his fame, success and influence probably deserved as much.
However, near the end of Letterman's final show, I was touched when he recognized his wife and son sitting in the audience. And then, with great affection, he said to them:
"Thank you for being my family...nothing else really matters."
What does really matter?
It is an existential question that no one can answer for us -- we must answer for our self.
