Jamie-Lee Josselyn has one heck of a story to tell at parties: You know, the one about the time David Letterman adopted her. But Josselyn's story is about more than a brush with late-night fame. It's really about how the famously cranky host helped a then-13-year-old Josselyn grieve the death of her mother. And now Josselyn, 32, associate director of recruitment of the creative writing program at the University of Pennsylvania, has to prepare for Letterman's exit. His final show, after 33 years in late night, will air at 11:35 p.m. Wednesday on CBS3.

HUDSON, N.H. - Ejected brass shell casings, glittering as the light caught them, flew as former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee emptied a Sig Sauer P238 pistol at a human silhouette target at the Granite State Indoor Range & Gun Shop. Saturday was a great day to test the compact weapon for his wife, Janet, who wants something less bulky to carry, and to pay homage to the Second Amendment as a potential 2016 Republican presidential candidate in the first primary state. At the tail-end of mud season and after the sugar maple trees had been tapped for syrup, ambitions were rising in New Hampshire last week as Huckabee and 18 other Republican candidates or potential candidates for president trooped through the state and gathered for a two-day forum hosted by the state party in Nashua.
