Tickets for the benefit $40, $80 and $150 each and will be administered by the foundation through its Mississippi Oil Spill Recovery Fund.

Way to go, Jay!

    he's still an ass.
    trying to get karma points….



  2. 2

    As if people in that area haven't suffered enough!



  3. 3

    Get rid of that stupid exorcism ad. It's annoying.

    Kudos to Leno. He did a similar gig in Michigan for the laid-off auto workers a few months ago.
    .
    I don't hear of Letterman giving (key word - G-I-V-I-N-G) his time for any charitable or worthwhile causes. Letterman (aka Worldwide pants) is a worldwide ASS.

    I don't get the negative comments. His comedy may be a little on the cheesy side but he's still a nice guy! Way to go Jay!

    Leno is not funny at all…poor people.

    Usually when celebs give and it's in the media, it's for publicity. It's truly genuine when people give and don't expect publicity in return. Lots of stars like Letterman give all the time privately.

    Why is it that Americans can raise 100s of millions of $$$ in a heartbeat for foreign countries that suffer devastation, but it takes a friggin' eternity to "organize an event" to get the same result????? That's fucked.

    Leno is a stand-up guy in more ways than one. You don't see a lot of other comedians flocking to do this.
    When I was a student and had to decide whether I could afford to do a load of laundry OR go to the movies, we got a student discount to see his show. If I ever see him again, I'll shake his hand.
    Sure, he's not going to do a dirty Sanchez joke, but that's OK, too. He and his wife spend a lot of time and money with charities; you don't see Letterman or Fallon doing that.

    Obama knew Gulf drilling ban would cost at least 23,000 jobs
    By: Mark Tapscott - The Examiner
    -
    "Interior Department officials knew beforehand that President Obama's six-month moratorium on drilling in the Gulf of Mexico would cost more than 23,000 jobs and inflict devastating economic damage throughout the region.
    -
    Even so, the administration was not deferred from defying a federal judge and doing it anyway.
    -
    Nationwide economic losses from the ban at $2.7 billion."
    -
    -
    Obama doing what Obama does, dismatling America piece by piece, in just two short years. Can't wait for the next two years!

    Re: litnight
    Don't thanks Leno for your student discount but NBC. And your story about - if you could do a load of laundry or go to the movies, I don't buy it. Just to make your story more dramatic. You are a phony and you are pathetic.

    Re: voie lacté!!!SEMICOLON!!!e
    boy, you're bitter and entitled! Care to time-travel back to my undergrad years, asperger boy, and do my laundry? And it was before he hosted the Tonight Show, so STFU and voir les quelques faits before you call a fact you don't like 'phony'. Put some money where your ass is, and give some $$ to a charity, ya cheap and cowardly bastid.

    President Obama intends to visit New Orleans on the August 29 anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.
    -
    If his past behavior is any guide, he’ll dance on George Bush’s political grave, take credit for things he did not accomplish, and fail to blame the group most responsible for the flooding damage:
    the Army Corpse of Engineers.
    -
    The Corpse was finally forced to admit they built poorly designed, substandard levees whose failure was responsible for two-thirds of the flooding in New Orleans.
    -
    Some revisionists on the left forget that they built and managed these failed levees for decades before ol’ George.
    -
    We miss you George.
    You were pounded by the enemy from within and the world.
    You stood tall.
    Thank you for your service.

    "I think our country is in need of a revolution," Bradbury told the Los Angeles Times earlier this week. "There is too much government today."
    -
    Mr. Bradbury,
    There's a revolution coming in Novbember.
    We will elect many Republicans.
    I'm going to warn the Republicans, "do not go rogue on us".
    -
    The people want you to stop the madness of this spending.
    You better do what you were sent to do, by the people.
    "Undo Obama's mess."
    Low taxes, small governemnt, a world power's energy policy and not this green shit. Go ask the Spanish about that losing policy.
    -
    If you fuck this up, like the Democrats have done with the Obama Regime, we'll be getting out the guns and shed some blood.
    -
    We've waited patiently for the legal way to do things… to run it's course.
    Just a warning shot over the bow, so to speak.
    Do not fail us Republican legislators, that will be elected in November.

    Every notice how whenever his ratings are in the toilet or he's getting bad publicity, he does something like this? You totally know the only reason he's doing it is so he can come out looking like a "good guy". He's an ass.

    Re: luvs2tango – Ray Bradbury: "To Hell With the Internet!"
    Good old Ray Bradbury (author of Fahrenheit 451, among other sci-fi classics) let loose with a little bit of the crazy when speaking of Yahoo! and the Internet as a whole. He classified the Internet as "meaningless" and "distracting."

    Bradbury recounted an anecdote of Yahoo! asking him if one of his works could be made available on the Internet. Bradbury's reply? "To hell with you. To hell with you and to hell with the Internet." He further elaborated, "It's distracting. It's meaningless; it's not real. It's in the air somewhere."
    *
    i'm sure crazy Ray would appreciate you quoting him on Perez's site since he's such a fan of the Internet, or as your hero Bush would say, the "Internets". LOL!
    and by the way, there are a lot of fucked up, misinformed, hate spewing idiots that leave comments on this blog, but i truly believe you take the cake. you should be so proud.
