First of all. congratulations on finallly getting married! I met David at the comedy store in La many years ago, I knew then he was a great talent. What I am not i mpressed with is that,he didn`t want to marry Regina for all of those years.He obviously had a crush on Scarlet J.but obviously, she just treated him as a grand father type. No, David, other men and women don t think of you as doing anything by not being married to a long time lover except that you are a coward....especially since yu are a father.also...
