David Letterman To Pay His Staff Out Of His Own Pocket

How awesome is David Letterman?

Well, let me tell you. Yesterday, Dave announced to his staff, that is currently on hiatus until the Hollywood writers strike is resolved, that he will pay their salaries until the end of the year. Now the plot twist: the money is coming out of his own wallet!

When the writers went on strike last week, CBS stopped paying Dave's people because the show ceased producing new episodes, which is fine if you're pulling in Dave's salary, but not something you're thankful for on Thanksgiving if you're a production assistant making $400 a week.

Nice try channeling the Grinch, CBS, but it looks like Dave saved Christmas!
