My life on the Left wasn’t a total write off.

Sure, I wish I had back all the money I spent on cigarettes and booze, and I regret wasting my then-22 inch waist on a stoner trust-fund boyfriend.

Yet very occasionally, I’d experience a life-changing epiphany while sitting on the rodent-infested couch in our drafty, leaking apartment.

I’ve written about one of those moments before: The Night I Stopped Hating Ronald Reagan.

Another incident occurred under almost identical circumstances: me and the boyfriend, watching TV.

It was The David Letterman Show.

I couldn’t stand the guy, but his show was the “approved” late night program in our circle, and besides, sometimes Letterman’s guests were worth waiting up for.

On this particular night, Letterman introduced his next guest with the words:

“Brace yourselves. I’m not kidding. Please welcome Sam Kinison.”

It was nice to see Pop Will Eat Itself reform in 2011, but for an era where a blog post leads to an online article about the casting of a biopic whose topic is a minor dead comedian, I think they should have reconsidered their verb tense.

Even if you can't stand him, try "Pauly Shore is Dead".
