The Daily Slow
In today's Fort Worth Star-Telegram is a piece about Jon Stewart, written by Alyson Ward. It includes this nugget, which is essentially the central point to her alarmingly unspectacular, tired story:
"Don't laugh. American culture, it seems, can't decide whether to classify Stewart as a comedian or a journalist."
Really, Alyson? Maybe if you had written this story five years ago that might have been a debate worth having. But now? My God, talk about being late to the party. Before this, I suspect she wrote stories about global warming, McCarthyism and Ford's wonderful new Model T (which, sadly, only comes in black).
Christ, and I thought The Dallas Morning News was out of touch... --John Gonzalez
