David Letterman followed his opening-monologue jokes last night with a harsh critique of the way the Olympics official accused deceased luge competitor Nodar Kumaritashvili of making "a mistake."
“A ‘mistake’? I just wonder if it had anything to do with those exposed steel girders… Don’t blame the kid, for god’s sake. He had said to his dad. ‘I think something’s a little haywire here; I’m a little bit frightened about the track'…For them to say that he made a mistake, that just stinks.
"Why is it that they then repaired the track and covered up the girders and started [the race] from the wormen’s starting point? You know what it is? It’s hypocrisy, ladies and gentlemen."
We have to agree with Dave! The official's statements were insensitive about the tragic accident.
What do U think?
