Good Morning, America!

Good Morning America ... and welcome to The First Day of the Rest of Our Life as a nation dedicated to the proposition that ALL are created equal!

So +Gene Robinson was Jon Stewart's guest last night on The Daily Show. (Incidentially the only news show my son said he and his colleagues watched when they were deployed in Iraq because all the rest was "BS.") Quick-on-his-feet as always, our Bishop of New Hampshire may just have given a whole generation a new way to think about the game of chess! :)

Also, you'll want to check out +Gene blogs about his Inauguration Day experiences here ... as well as his reflections on Sunday's concert here.


Thanks to Episcopal Cafe for the link to this video -- and stay tuned for more on this morning's Nat'l Prayer service ... still in progress as I write ... where Sharon Watkins preached a TOTALLY fabulous sermon that deserves a much wider audience than whoever is still at home on a Wednesday morning watching CNN!

What a GREAT beginning to this First Day of the Rest of Our Lives in the U.S. A.!

Meanwhile, KABC (LA) refuses to air an add from the Get to know us first campaign, which is highlight gay families, because it's TOO CONTROVERSIAL to show gay family.

More here.

This is in LA, not Podunk. What the....

OK, how come I can't see this video and all it does it go directly to replay? Argh.

This was such a fun, yet poignant interview, and I wish they had had more time!

That joke was so great, and Jon was not expecting it *at all*! Jon thought he was giving Gene a hard time... but no, lol!

Re: KABC, that's GOT to be illegal discrimination! I wonder if they ran any other commercials during the election that had any remotely political references?

Jon Stewart is not a news show. It, like other such shows (e.g., Rush Limbaugh) is entertainment. They spoof the news, they provide satirical commentary on the news, etc., which is all well and valid and even entertaining (depending on one's tastes and biases), but it's primary objective is to entertain, not inform on any premise of objectivity.
