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*

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"

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.
Apr 23, '01Occupation: fulltime student Joined: Mar '01; Posts: 2,025; Likes: 1I 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.....

Apr 25, '01Occupation: ARNP Joined: Mar '01; Posts: 137; Likes: 9The 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 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.

Mar 8, '02Joined: Nov '00; Posts: 9; Likes: 1Hi 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..

Mar 9, '02Joined: Jan '02; Posts: 10I 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.
