Leaving church this morning, my wife informed me that Stephen Colbert would be (or should be) leaving Mass that morning, too. She had found out on Wikipedia that Colbert was Catholic. At least he had been raised Catholic, according to Wikipedia.
This led me to read for myself about Colbert and Stewart on Wikipedia. I found this sentence which summarizes something of how I feel about the two: Jon Stewart's laughs come at the expense of idealism. Both are funny men; I laugh at their jokes. Yet, at the same time, I can't help but feel a smug despair lies beneath.
Enough, for now, of moralizing.
