Lunch with Rupert
The high point of my recent trip to NYC was lunch at Rupert Jee's Hello Deli. If you don't know Rupert Jee, set your Tivo to record Letterman every night. Eventually, he'll pop up in a cameo or a guest will drop by the deli or they'll have Rupert round up people off the street for a sketch on the show.
Rupert seemed like a very nice, cordial guy. He is so patient with people constantly asking to take their picture with him. He has several photos of celebrities on the wall. While I was eating my excellent sandwich, another Letterman celeb came in -- Tony Mendez ("the cue card guy"), who has his own very funny show on the Web -- The Tony Mendez Show.
