A great service to the nation by Jon Stewart and his colleagues who staged the Rally to Restore Sanity. Jon made some very useful distinctions in his speech.
He reminds us that the greatest number of people in our society are indeed sane and cooperative every day, compromising and conducting themselves respectfully. We have only to see how traffic moves through a city to remind ourselves of that. We know, if many others don’t, that their numbers are only destined to grow in the years ahead.
Maybe this is only me projecting, but every rally like this seems to have the impact of ten by racists and bigots.
And maybe I’m only projecting again, but Jon Stewart seems to be growing and his perspective expanding. And that can only be useful to the nation. Thanks to Carol for the link.
