Modern comedy is about being part of something -- not just laughing. Modern comedians have transformed their fan bases into meaningful communities such that comedy shows have become meeting places and even celebrations for like-minded audiences.
We are so close to losing our democracy to the mercenary class, it's as if we are leaning way over the rim of the Grand Canyon and all that's needed is a swift kick in the pants. Look out below.
We seemed to have lost our viewing attention span. What's happened to us? How do folks without a DVR cope?
Right now, 48.6 million Americans lack health insurance. The vast majority aren't freely choosing that insecurity. It's not that they don't want the peace-of-mind of insurance. It's that they can't afford it.
You know that little game where corporations like Netflix, TiVo and Amazon.com try to "recommend" products they think will appeal to you? That process is based on meticulously crafted algorithms that apply artificial intelligence to retail choices.
