This was origanally on another post, but I felt it deserved it's own post It's no wonder the public gets the idea that we are handmaidens. Did anyone see Jay Leno last night? One of his "jokes"... Read More

    OK, I don't watch any TV...I'm always online . But I emailed this scumbag anyway telling him I'd never watch his show again and that David Letterman now had a regular viewer in me! (I just remember David Letterman's picture on the front of a nursing Spectrum magazine--I may have even perused the article--but I know it was positive.)

    It all comes down to RESPECT, doesn't it? And we don't much get it. *sigh*

    Yep, I "Pulled the plug on Jay" This time we don't have to listen to the put-downs. We can actually shut him OFF. I too e-mailed Dave to say thanks for the positive comments about nurses, we can use all the GOOD PR we can get! Hope Dave says something on his show about the "Baffoon"

    David Letterman is just as obnoxious. Obviously many of you missed his show about 2 months ago, when one of his comedian buddies celebrated his recovery with him on the show (not a rerun) by having singing and dancing nurses complete with cleavage, mini-mini skirts, spike-heeled shoes, and white stockings with garterbelts. I guess Dave has short-term memory. He'll remember, though, when one of his grafts occludes.

    I received this today in my email........Robin, I wanted to follow up with you and let you know we are
    sending a letter to NBC regarding Jay Leno's "joke" on The
    Tonight show. Once the letter is out the door, we'll post it on
    our website, www.nursingworld.org, as well. I encourage you
    and any other nurses to contact the show as well. As I said in
    my earlier mail, sometimes hearing from individual nurses can
    make a difference even more than just from an organization --
    perhaps, working together we can all make a difference.

    Thank you for your efforts in this area.

    I don't know if it will do much good, but at least the ANA is taking notice of the situation.....

    Got the same email, wonder who actually reads them?

    The initial e-mail respnse that we received is not actually sent by anyone. They use a program which sends back a form letter automatically to any e-mail received. Hopefully someone will read it but the e-mail we received is just an automated resopnse.

    I know this thread is old but.......

    I had a very funny image pop into my head after reading Leno's joke. I pictured him laying in a hospital bed suffering from a massive PE, horrid chest pain, so short of breath he could not speak.....the only person around was a prostitute dressed as a nurse doing a strip tease instead of taking decisive, quick RN actions Ha....ha....ha.

    Hi all,
    I have added my voice to all of yours and wrote to Mr. Leno and Mr. Letterman. I have also passed this info along to all of the nurses I have emails for.
    I am considering writing his advertisers too..
    Better late than never I guess..

    Actually I have watched the Leno show from time to time. I will not any longer! I did send my email.

    I emailed Leno and asked for a public apology. But I don't watch the show. I hope someone will be kind enough to post his apology, should he give one. I won't hold my breath.
