I was thinking that if you sent the Late Show a copy of the march issue Dave might get a kick out of Gary Shockly's story, and mention it on-air with a copy of the mag. This would get the mag a little exposure and some imaginative and intelligent people watching may get curious and go out and by a copy.

No dice? I think it'd be funny at least. He may not like it, but whatever, there's always a chance considering his humor. But it's a stretch to think it'd go anywhere.

You could send a copy to them. :-)

I've got no problem sending a copy of the issue to David Letterman, just haven't had time recently to dig up his address.

If you want to write to Dave Letterman or the crew, you can do it with one of two ways. The first is e-mail. Their address is lswdl@aol.com. Second is snail-mail. The address is as follows:

David Letterman
Ed Sullivan Theater
1697 Broadway
New York, NY 10019

Actually, any one of you out there (including, yours truly) can send a copy of that March issue of F&SF to "The Late Show with David Letterman", and not necessarily just rely on Gordon or someone from his staff to do so. But chances are one-in-a-zillion that Dave will read it even if you do, due to the enormous amount of mail (both electronic and snail) that he receives each day.

Perhaps a better idea would be to send an issue with a political piece (Perhaps the September 2004 issue of F&SF with that fine piece of social speculation "Peter Skilling", by Alex Irvine in it), to "The Russ Limbaugh Show". ;-D

Thanks for tracking that down, Alan.

I loved the story. I think that someone on Letterman's staff will read it, enjoy it and pass it on to him.

If Letterman did the kind of humorous skits that Johny Carson used to do, then this story (in shorter form) might just get used "on air."

Alternately, it might be suggested that a reprint be made available on the Late Show web site. The publicity couldn't hurt Gary Shockly or F&SF.

Yeee...Yup! You're very welcome, John!
It was my pleasure.
Anytime!...Anyplace!...Anywhere! ;-)
