thank you, jon stewart

My man Howard Zinn was on "The Daily Show" last night! If you missed it, try to catch the re-run today. Zinn seemed a little hesitant at first, but once he got going he was awesome.

In comparing George W Bush to Christopher Columbus, Zinn noted that at least while Columbus was pillaging and annihilating, he was right there beside his men. We seldom hear such truth-telling on television, and I thank Jon Stewart from the bottom of my heart.

Wow, you've been a regular blogging machine lately. I guess your new palmtop is making things easier?

Ha ha. Actually, I've never posted from my handheld yet. I'm just getting into writing more.

When I started the blog, I thought I should stay within the narrow topic of emigrating to Canada. Then I added saying goodbye to New York City. Then what I'm reading. Then... So my range of topics has increased quite a bit.

Go to TDS's webpage. There is video of various parts of the show. The Zinn segment might be up later today or tomorrow.

Thanks, I missed the show, but love your quote from it.

Check out my http://resistfascism.blogspot.com, for I am in complete agreement with your sympathies.

You can probably catch it in a re-run anyway. Zinn made a point-by-point comparison of Bush & Columbus, it was really cool.

I am going to your blog right now. Great title and handle!
