Dying to Do Letterman

Did you hear about this guy? Stave Mazan who was diagnosed with inoperable liver cancer in 2005 decided to spend his remaining days trying to achieve his lifelong dream of doing stand-up on Letterman. (Article)

The Letterman people weren't going to book him out of pity. They made him earn it. So after years on the circuit and 2 performances on the Craig Ferguson show, last week he finally did Letterman.

I know this guy! I mean I knew him anyway. I was in an improv class with him about 9 years ago and I used to get emails telling me when his stand-up gigs were.

In 1789, the governor of Australia granted land and some animals to James Ruse in an experiment to see how long it would take him to support himself. Within 15 months he had become self sufficient. The area is still known as Experiment Farm. This is my Experiment Farm to see how long it will take me to support myself by writing.
