Guests Include Film Star Bruce Willis and LL COOL J from the New Hit CBS Drama Series “NCIS: Los Angeles”David Letterman marks 5,000 broadcasts in his late night television career on the LATE SHOW with DAVID LETTERMAN, Friday, Sept. 25 (11:35 PM-12:37 AM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Letterman, who has notched 1,810 “Late Night” shows and, as of Friday, 3,186 broadcasts and four primetime specials of CBS’s LATE SHOW in his late night television career, comments during Friday’s monologue that people “say to me, ‘Dave, what keeps you working night after night, week after week, month after month, year after year after year? Seriously, why do you keep working?’ And I just tell them, ‘Well, Foxwoods gambling resort.’”
Comment:  I don't know why, but jokes about Indians and casinos are busting out all over late-night talk shows.

So I take it, the guy is a gambling addict. No wonder he's gotta keep working. Perhaps to pay off favors, debts owed etc.....

That was the implication, yes. But it was only a joke, of course.
