Did My Mother Mention David Letterman is from Indiana?


Happy “David Letterman Day!” That’s right.  Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard proclaimed May 20, 2015 as “David Letterman Day” in honor of the city’s most famous resident who is retiring after 33 years as host of his ingenious late night talk show.
