I Don’t Handle Endings Well

And my heart is broken about Jon Stewart leaving The Daily Show. But that’s my problem. I will always be grateful for what you’ve done, and for your amazing show. For me, you neutralized my rage during very trying times, and made me feel hopeful. You made me feel not alone. “This is insane, right?? And wrong. Right??” Yes, you’d show us night after night. It’s insane and wrong. And you always accomplished this with truth and humor. It never got ugly on The Daily Show. Everyone was treated with respect and given a chance to make their case.

I should just say thank you, instead of whining. But this is all about ME. Except, yeah. Thank you. Seriously. THANK YOU. Thank you for helping so many people I love with their careers. Also, the fact that you and your wife will be running a farm animal sanctuary is a great chapter two (or whatever chapter you’re up to). Thank you and thank you Tracey for that.

Okay, I’m going to go sob in the corner now. In times of sadness, sometimes what we need is a pitbull kissing a horse.

  1. Oh, I couldn’t agree more. I’m just heartbroken. What will I do for my news and my viewing pleasure, as Stewart has been my crush now for more than 10 years?
