DOROTHY MENGERING, a masterful pie-maker from a small town in Indiana who “covered” three Winter Olympics for her mischievous son, David Letterman, has died. She was 95.

Mengering, who for years made regular appearances on Letterman’s Late Show before Thanksgiving and Mother’s Day, died Tuesday, according to a rep for the former late-night host.

You find out what someone is really like in "battle," and Olbermann is who you want to be in a foxhole with, Patrick said. "On the air, we had each others' backs," said Olbermann.

How sad that she died the day before David Letterman's 70th birthday (which is today)! :-(

She was also a fan of the WNBA's Indiana Fever basketball team. She won season tickets during their first season in 1999.
