What does Jonathan have to say?



Where's Colbert?

Stephen Colbert is missing!  Last night, Comedy Central showed a repeat episode of The Colbert Report despite the fact new episodes were scheduled for the entire week. Published reports say audience members were only told of the cancellation a few hours before the show.
 
The Colbert Report is cancelled for the rest of this week “due to unforeseen circumstances,” according to officials at Comedy Central.  For the last several months, Colbert has been exposing the hypocrisy of Super Pacs donations to candidates in this year’s Presidential election. 
 
What’s up?
 
Did he get the secret powers in Washington mad?
 
I doubt it.
 
I hope it’s not a personal tragedy in Colbert’s life.  He has already had his share of personal tragedy.  Long before the date 9/11 meant anything to all of America, it was a sad day for Colbert.
 
On September 11, 1974, Colbert’s father and two of his brothers were killed in a plane crash.  Eastern Air Lines Flight 212 crashed while attempting to land in Charlotte, North Carolina.  His two brothers were enrolling at Canterbury School in New Milford.
 
Colbert was just ten years old at the time.  His father, James was vice president for academic affairs at the Medical University of South Carolina.  Whenever Colbert shows a clip on his show he always refers to a producer named Jim.  I’ve often wondered if it’s a small tribute to his father.
 
Both Colbert and John Stewart do amazing and important work on a network that features stand-up comics, obnoxious cartoon characters and two-star comedy movies.  They’ve raised the consciousness of many people in America with the biting satire on the ridiculous things both the Republicans and Democrats are doing in Washington.
 
Let’s hope Colbert’s absence is a stunt to expose more political nonsense and that it’s not a personal tragedy.

Most expensive dishes from around the world. ~Stevi
I never thought I would see the day where chocolate pudding showed up on a list of most expensive dishes. I feel like someone should contact Bill Cosby about this. More outrageiously priced food here; be ready to pick your jaw off the floor. ~Stevi
