Rally to Restore Sanity

All aboard!

Jon Stewart’s closing speech:

I wish I could believe that some on the “other side” would take Stewart’s words to heart, but I fear that USians are in for some interesting times, in the Chinese proverb sense.

    Cat Stevens?!?   Who maintains that Solomon Rushdie must die for what he wrote?!?  I love Cat Stevens’ music, especially Longer Boats. It brings back so many memories.   But he has become a murder advocating thug, something that breaks my heart.

    I am, from a technical perspective, amazed by the array of floor monitors in front of the microphone. Holy cow!

    I never would have believed I would see a sousaphone on stage with Ozzy, let alone being played during Crazy Train!

    Man! it would be cool to play loud rock-n-roll on a sunny day, on the Capitol Mall…

    John Stewart said, “We can have animus, and not be enemies.”   But I have not very often been treated by those who disagree with me as if that were the case…

    “Not being able to between real racists and tea partiers, or real bigots and Juan Williams or Rick Sanchez is an insult, not only to those people, but to the racists themselves who have put in the exhausting effort it takes to hate.”

    Hear, Hear!   (Are you listening, CTZen?)

     

    “Sanity will always be– and will always be in the eye of the beholder,” is nice sounding, but mistaken.   The assessment of, has been, but sanity is a more objective quality than the statement allows.   I point this out because largely wrong systems of thought are built from little departures from accuracy like this, and so we must be careful.

     

    At about 9:00, the hanging flat-screen behind him sure gets going.

     

    I largely agree with Jon Stewart’s closing remarks, and await eagerly to see whether JJ’s wish that some will take these words to heart will be manifested here.

    A bit late, but I thought this was interesting:


Wait. What?
