    As a shareholder, it's just a little scary to me to see him walking over to the random people waiting outside the door. Though it looks like he's got a fair number os "assistants" surrounding him, still. . .

    Anyone else have that reaction?

    Nope. I tend not to be concerned about those things I can not control. I thought it was awesome of him to go sign some autographs for people, and when he went wing walking I thought that was also fantastic. He should be free and able to live his life as he sees fit.

    Well, that sounds like good advice. Thanks for that perspective.

    I was very disappointed with the interview (and the late show, in general so far.) Sigh.

    andrewket ... could not agree with you more.

    Kolbert comes across as an idiot ... with that hat .. OMG ... and then one of the worlds most remarkable men sitting next to him ... not taking anything seriously ... "one of the CEO's" ...

    and 7 minutes dedicated to rap, which in my book is not music.

    That's the last Late Show for me ...

    - - - Updated - - -

    Agreed ... I have that reaction ... I trust no one around him.

    or Freedom. Elon seems to choose his preference.
    The interview sucked big time. Stephen is off his game, to put it kindly.

    The first person to get in the car was Elon's mother followed by Talulah.

    I've met Elon's mother a few months ago at the Nikola Tesla Rally. She's such a wonderful person.

    Colbert is in over his head.... Let's hope he pulls a Palin and figures the game out before he runs out of runway. He is smart enough; I just hope the hubris does not get in the way.

    You'd have to admit though that Elon had the line of the night, when he said you wouldn't want to be bending over near the beta charging snake. LOL

    I think he said "wouldn't want to drop something near it", but yeah.

    The bearded dude looked pretty worried......either about security or the next appointment.

    It would take a wonderful person to instill such a sense of duty, integrity, and desire to see a better future in her children.

    Wolfgang,

    I just sought out the video and was almost embarrassed watching it.

    The guy recently strapped himself on top of an airplane wing and him signing a few autographs worries you? In addition to his security team, I noticed at least three NYPD officers a bomb sniffing dog. I'm sure the that area is secure.

    I took that as a PG way of not dropping one's pants around it.

    Either way I thought the comment was hilarious. That and the Mars nukes.
