"I can remember the first day that Stephen Colbert took over put his [new] show on the air," Letterman says in a wide-ranging interview with the nonprofit literary journal 'Whitefish Review.'

David Letterman's Farewell Speech

  For a solid portion of the tail end of his finale, David Letterman took time to thank the people who have helped him on his 6,000-plus-episode journey as a talk-show host. Watch the whole shebang here, as he thanks his Late Show staff, Biff Henderson, Paul Shaffer and Co., his family, and even this random gem of a kid named Tommy.

"In light of all this praise [from the last few weeks]," he quipped, "do me a favor: Save a little for my funeral." We'll miss ya, Dave. Thanks.   Read More...   http://www.vulture.com/2015/05/watch-lettermans-farewell-speech.html
