August 6, 2015: The United States of America has lost an important brick of the national check and balance system with the loss of Jon Stewart. For those who read this blog page from other countries, Jon Stewart was for most young people, their main and maybe only source of news. He was beyond being a court jester because he and his writers were voices that no one seemed to control. Their voice seemed to cut through the bull shit that we expect from politicians, the gutless “news” we get from print, the sensationalist TV “news” short stories amounting to nothing in the time line of history. What Jon Stewart did was illuminate hypocrisy and shined light on the stupid which the United States of America, as well as any country, is full of.
