Some people just want to keep their children ignorant. Not a good strategy.

if that retarded freak goes and prostitutes herself, she'll get the money more quickly. then she can sue the johns for degradation and have them arrested for rape, and get even more money! and let's hope she gets a few 'little guys' splashed on her face or shirt, because there's an assault charge to capitalize on!! this c''t work for aig or what?

Never mind the fact that this dedicated mother is allowing her 7 year old to watch an adult talk show at 11:30 at night, and after Dave Letterman finishes all his schtick, his first guest isn't brought out until midnight.
Apparently, this mom's lawsuit is about the girl asking "mom, what's an assassin?" That's a real question, and it deserves a real answer, with the opportunity for a morals lesson thrown in.
I hope the judge not only throws this idiotic suit out of court, but I hope he makes her pay for all of Jerry's court costs.

She's suing because her daughter asked what an assassin was? If I wasn't reading this in October, I'd swear this is an April Fools Joke.

This lawsuit makes no sense. I also have a middle name, and I didn't care. I sure as heck didn't feel like there was any defamation taking place.

Not to be picky, but why did the daughter have to "came home from school" before she asked if she supposedly watched it.

"the author says her 7-year-old daughter was upset by the comedian's comments" And yet all the girl said was "Mom, what is an assassin?" Haha, I spy someone lying.

I declare this article a joke, because I believe that it is true. There is no way anyone is this stupid. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find any evidence for it being false.

Jerry rode to fame on the writing talent of Larry David. Without Larry, the Seinfeld show turned to crap.

On the other hand, "Curb Your Enthusiasm" is pure genius.
