I think the fact that anyone wants to read that hella long novel is a compliment. I would be surprised if there was one other person besides my mother that wanted to read my writing. Granted my skills aren't quite the quality of my highly published bro.
I really hope Jon Stewart doesn't leave the Daily Show, mainly because I think primetime would ruin him. He would be restricted and cheesy and God forbid he has a laugh track. Well, I guess I'm a skeptic and I've lost most of my faith in quality programming and I use two words in that defense: "reality TV". I rest my case. God speed Jon Stewart, may you avoid the tragic traps set by TV management and may you bring yet another small glimpse of intelligence to TV.
