A Tough Goodbye

Watching Jon Stewart's last Daily Show was harder than watching the last Friends, the last Knot's Landing (my favorite 80s guilty pleasure), even the last M*A*S*H.  There haven't been too many shows I've watched whose final broadcasts have had the same effect on me that Jon Stewart signing off did.

Jon Stewart is one of a kind.  The best at what he did.  The voice of a generation. The voice of reason.  He did news better than actual news channels. He will definitely be missed.

I know I'm not the only one, so I'm just going to say it out loud - I cried watching him say goodbye.  He choked up, he was full of emotion, and he was so real.  I know it's a TV show, but still.  He spoke to us.  For us.  About us.

Stay Vigilant.
