Jon Stewart talk to Bill Moyers.

Rarely do I wade into politics here (as there are a lot of other people who do such a good job at it), but I could not resist putting up this video of an interview of Jon Stewart (host of The Daily Show on Comedy Central) by Bill Moyers (PBS Radio).
Among other viewpoints expressed, I liked his views on the loss of innocence...

Jafabrit,
There were two important points made in the interview:
-The fact that as soon as you have your own child, you lose your innocence and you just can’t trust the world like you did before
-The fact that even though the real solution to the war is to call up another 100000 troops and quell the uprising with an iron hand, we could never do it - as the only way to do it is to re-introduce the draft which is unpopular and which will make the administration unpopular and which will never happen. The current status quo allows all of us to be happy shopping at the malls for our next big day (we just finished up Mothers day) and not know a thing about a war being fought half a world away with real people dying...
