A few weeks ago, she was just a wrangler who led dudes on trail rides near Glacier National Park. This week, Erin Bolster is trying to deal with a thousand email messages a day, not to mention book proposals and tempting job offers. The wrangler who rode her horse to the rescue of a young boy being threatened by a grizzly bear this summer is trying to settle back into her Montana lifestyle. That’s easier said than done after a Sept. 18 feature in The Spokesman-Review trotted Erin Bolster and her horse, Tonk, into the national spotlight. The ride peaked with an Oct. 11 appearance on “Late Night with David Letterman.” “I’m not sure I’ve landed yet,” said the 25-year-old Virginia native after returning from New York City to her home in Whitefish, Mont./Rich Landers, SR.

Question: What would you do if you were in Erin Bolster's shoes?

The horse Tonk and Erin Bolster receive warm applause after being introduced by Late Show host David Letterman. At the end of July, the Whitefish, Montana native and saved the life of an 8-year-old Illinois boy when Bolster, riding astride Tonk, helped scare a charging grizzly bear away from the boy as she was leading a group of eight people on a trail ride near Glacier National Park.

Fans of heroes, horses, wranglers and grizzly bears got it all in one package Tuesday night on “The Late Show with David Letterman.” Trail riding guide Erin Bolster and her horse from Whitefish, Mont., were featured on the CBS show after a Sept. 18 Spokesman-Review feature trotted the duo into the national spotlight. “How can you not love this story?” Letterman said as he introduced Bolster. The host praised the 25-year-old wrangler who leveraged her own bravery as she persuaded the horse to save a child by charging a grizzly bear head on. She’d been acquainted with the leased horse from the Swan Mountain Outfitters stock pool for only two months/Rich Landers, SR. More here.

Question: Have you ever done something worthy of David Letterman?
Question: What would you add to Letterman’s Top 10 list (re: Top 10 Great Things About the West)?
In this Aug. 20, 2000 file photo, Tiger Woods points to his ball as it drops for birdie on the first hole of a three-hole playoff against Bob May at the PGA Championship at the Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Ky.
Like years past, this one has been a whopper for high-profile philanderers. Psychologists aren’t surprised, as guys are wired to want sex, a lot, and are more likely than gals to cheat. The behavior may be particularly likely for men with power, researchers say, though they point out that despite the genetic propensity to sleep around, cheating remains a choice, not a DNA-bound destiny.
The list of powerful individuals whose marital transgressions came out this year includes Tiger Woods, David Letterman, former senator John Edwards and South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford.
The obvious question, perhaps most perplexing when it comes to wealthy men who had beautiful wives and seemingly enviable lives: “What were they thinking?”
Turns out, they may not have been thinking consciously about the acts at all.
“I’m guessing these things don’t happen at the forefront of their brain,” said Scott Reynolds, assistant professor of business ethics at the University of Washington in Seattle. “They aren’t things he sits down and calculates out. It’s in the background.” Full story.
This has got to be the understatement of the year: “I’m guessing these things don’t happen at the forefront of their brain,” Still, the article is a good read even if the answer is pretty simple– cheating is a choice.
Of course, your thoughts may differ.
Fishwife says, “Letterman is fading fast. Can’t hold a candle to Conan and Jay.” http://www.spokesman.com/blogs/hbo/2009/jun/12/did-lettermans-palin-joke-go-too-far/#comments
Palin tempest in a teapot aside, I agree. I used to adore Letterman. He kept me company on many nights when I was up with babies but when compared to Conan or Colbert his schtick seems old and tired. Or is it just me?
