The NYTimes had a piece on Jon Stewart this weekend, noting that he's among the most trusted sources of news in our country. I think that doesn't scare me at all. Because, with good comedy, he's taking us closer to important issues than most main-stream news is willing.
I particularly liked the last bit of a passage quoted from him, at the end of an explanation of why they're interested in tough subjects:
"Everyone here is working too hard to do stuff we don’t care about." -Jon Stewart
