Looks like privacy does have a price - at least if you're David Letterman. It appears that Letterman was subject to a blackmail plot, and as part of the fallout he has had to relinquish some of his privacy - information that he had been sleeping with some of the women who worked on his show (although at this point in time, it is not clear how many women and when this occurred). Obviously this information would have come out when the alleged blackmailer ended up in court - and at least some credit goes to Letterman for the chutzpah to break the news on his show this week. The whole incident did leave me wondering though - how much would have to be at stake for me to expose previously known information about me that could threaten my job, my marriage and my reputation? It's a question that I hope never to have to answer in reality.
