With luck, we’ll get John Oliver and all will be well. (And Jon Stewart won’t, like, disappear. He’ll find ways to be relevant.) But while we have him, watch this. For days now it’s be making me crazy how overblown the reaction’s been to the VA Secretary’s attempt to connect with that homeless vet. Even the Secretary’s apology, I thought, while warranted, was overblown, unduly abject. Well, as usual, Jon Stewart — and seemingly only Jon Stewart — just nails it. And makes the real point here.
Quote of the Day
Money is a singular thing. It ranks with love as man’s greatest source of joy. And with death as his greatest source of anxiety. Over all history it has oppressed nearly all people in one of two ways: either it has been abundant and very unreliable, or reliable and very scarce.~John Kenneth Galbraith, The Age of Uncertainty
