For the first time in my life I watched a full Oprah episode. Dave seemed cool but and at least a lil bit more relaxed, but for me he still didn't answered stone cold why he left. Oprah picked up on this and asked him basically 4 or 5 times to tell her why he left. The closest to an answer was that "they" were running the program and getting his money. It was very sketchy to say the least.

He did say if Comedy Central restructured his contract for a)more power and better enviorment for him and the program and b) half dvd sales to be given to charity, he will come back and finish the season. The one thing that shocked me the most is the Neil (long time friend and writer with him) never called him throughout this time.

I don't know..it wasn't what i expected, he's still paranoid about the whole ordeal and I think something beyond his control is what really is bothering him the most but he can't tell about it.

Notice that they didn't address how Oprah talked to him through his TV set and tell him to stop making the show.

They got to him! They did!

Sorry I missed this. Did Oprah say she was a fan of the show? Did she come out and say she thought it was bad for blacks, and only reinforcing stereotypes?

So I guess "rainbow party" is her code phrase for "MARRY ME!", huh?

He insisted that they try to get him to take some kind of meds. There must be more to this story and I think he was at least acting crazier than he would like to admit.
