Letterman: Screw the Weather

David Letterman returned to Ball State to dedicate a new communications and media building in his own name.

Thousands of people stood in front of the new David Letterman Communication and Media Building on Friday afternoon, all hoping the weather would hold off for just a few moments longer.

But, as talk show host Letterman said during the dedication ceremony of the newest building on Ball State University’s Campus, “Screw the weather.”

Those words were strong enough to keep the hard rain away until minutes after the ceremony ended.

We certainly all knew that Letterman had attended Ball State when we were there, but his fortunes today are certainly better than they were twenty five years ago when he was wearing tennis shoes and throwing watermelons out of windows.

I guess he hasn't really changed much.
