“What’s right and good doesn’t come naturally. You have to stand up and fight for it---as if the cause depends on you, because it does.” (Bill Moyers) As I was flipping through the TV channels yesterday afternoon, I saw a conversation between Moyers and Jon Stewart. Today’s quote describes the gist of what they talked about. Passivism is a problem with many of us. BTW, do you like The Daily Show? ;-) Jack
FROM GOOD DEBT JON IN OHIO: Jon Stewart, yes, humorous, insightful, his Daily Show supported by free market—I like it. Bill Moyer, no, agenda driven ideologue, paid from public tax dollars at PBS (mostly). I do agree with the statement about passivism, a pacifist always cedes ground to his neighbor—whether real estate or intellectual ground.
FROM B.S., NEAR ORLANDO: Hi, this reflects my parent's teachings. I wish they were here today so we could talk about the current situations.
MORE FROM ORLANDO: Hi, we think Bill Moyer is tops. This program was the first time we met with Jon Steward. He appleared to be very bright. we were impressed.
FROM B.C. IN CHICAGO: watch the Daily show religiously as you can imagine, as well as the Colbert Report. Even Connor likes them!
FROM MOLINER, G.S.: Like a good marriage, doing the right things takes time and effort.
FROM JAN AND DICK: Thanks, Jack, for the heads up on The Daily Show. We haven't watched it but we certainly will now. We'll catch that show at 8:00p.m. on the Comedy channel.
FROM D.C. IN MICHIGAN: In the last couple years of his life, Dick went to bed at 11 so he didn't have to watch Channel 7 news. Instead he watched Jon Stewart. Another thing he watched, this time that I refused to watch, was Mail Call.
