The Month of Zen has been amazing. So great to look back at the old styles, correspondents and the issues of the day. I remember so many of these shows. It's like opening a time capsule I made for myself but hosted by Jon Stewart.

Stewart has been in interesting form these past coupla weeks...he's smelling the barn, and seems to be displaying a strong sense of 'I-don't-give-a-f*#k-itis' in every section of the show.

There seems to be a remarkable dearth of anyone out there who will eventually be able to fill his shoes. It's going to be a real bummer to lose him.

^ ^ ^ ^ I think he's got what's referred to as FIGMO - F*#kit I Got My Orders.

(It's a military term. I learned it from some old friends who were in the Navy.)

Ap, I think he'll return in a role even better than the one he has now. Such an important voice to call out the insanity that is the current Republican Party.

agreed, we may not get his voice of reason four days a week but as the clown car debates ramp up there's no way he stays silent.

Awwww, man....it's over.

Funny to see longtime Stewart rivals and targets like McCain, O'Reilly, Christie be able to show up and roast him a little...with a smile.

'Bullshit is everywhere.' That section struck me as Stewart's soliloquy on what he had tried to do during his tenure, and his warning for the future.

And of course, the Boss had to be Stewart's own Moment of Zen.


We'll miss you, Jon. Thank you so very much.

Just got off the phone with Mom. She said "It was sad, the loss of a warrior, someone who cares about what is happening."

For years, I'd call her, she'd say "I'll call You back. I'm watching Jon Stewart."

Cool. I'm humble. She'd always ring Me back. I'm lucky, My mom is the best.

Tonight was kinda trippy, first time I heard her utter the word "bullsh#t."

I was like, "Mom, did you say "bullsh#t?"

She was like, "Yes, ahem - he said 'bullsh#t'!"

Crap. I'm retired. She wants to turn Me back into an activist.

Kinda freaked Me out. I'm lucky. I got the best Mom, she doesn't want Me to brag about it.

Seriously great show. And I don't watch TV. It wouldn't be funny if there wasn't truth buried in there; unfortunately he had SO much truth to work with.
