- Donald Trump is still stupid and still leads in the polls.
- Too many Syrian refugees still have nowhere to go.
- Too many people still got shot in the United States.
- KY Clerk of Court Kim Davis is still a douche.
- House Republicans still think that shutting down the government is a good idea to get their way even though that never works.
The hysteria CBS induced has died down a bit but Stephen Colbert is still rocking the Late Show with sharp comedy and even sharper interviews (at least with the non-Hollywood set.) Meanwhile, Stephen’s best bud from over at Comedy Central, former Daily Show host Jon Stewart, showed up on Capitol Hill to try to get Congress to agree that providing health care assistance to first responders from 9/11 is a good idea and actually fund that program. Depressingly for Jon Stewart and other normal human beings, it was a bit of an uphill battle.
Likely the same people who are being recalcitrant about funding the first responders health plan are also the types who would question climate change which means that won’t be listening to another former late night talk show host. It seems that a documentary about climate change on the National Geographic channel will be hosted by…David Letterman. Yes, Dave’s 1st gig post CBS Late Show is a documentary on National Geographic.
Oh, and Dave will be doing this in India.
So that’s a thing.
On the subject of DC and Batman, there was the welcome announcement that Bill Finger, the writer acknowledged but not credited as the true creator of Batman, will receive credit in this upcoming season of Gotham over on FOX and next year’s Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice. What form that credit will take is unknown at this time but it’s a very significant step forward in officially recognizing Bill’s role in the creation of arguably the greatest comic book character of all time.
So that’s enough catching up for now. Thanks for dropping by. Remember to be good to one another and I’ll be back here with another post tomorrow.
