Over at the Daily Nightly, BriWi takes a break from the news to post a mini-paean to Jon Stewart on this, his 45th birthday — which, alas, will go uncelebrated on the air tonight. "The sad truth is that we haven't seen Jon — or Jay, Dave, Conan, Stephen and the rest, including the gang at SNL — since the writers' strike knocked them all off the air 24 days ago," writes BriWi, whose giant head is clearly lonely. "There is so much out there to poke fun at — so much that demands to be poked fun at — and it is simply going unpoked." Indeed. Who couldn't use a good poke now and again? In any case, Happy Birthday, Jon Stewart! Many happy returns, or at least a happy return to the airwaves sometime soon.
WHERE HAVE YOU GONE, JONATHAN STUART LEIBOWITZ? [Daily Nightly]
