So here I am, a viewer who relies on The Daily Show for political news*, and a writer who relies on corporations for a living wage**. What to do? I can't exactly protest the comedy writers' protest, but still. I do miss JonStephen.
Oh, I get it. That can be my excuse for not blogging lo these many weeks. I'm expressing my solidarity with the striking writers. That's it.
I'm an author, an editor, and an independent voter who was independent when independent wasn't cool. I was also purple when purple wasn't cool, but that's another story. The current story is that independent voters like me are finally making our voices heard, and make no mistake about it--our elected officials and wannabe elected officials are the ones who are listening most intently. It's a good time to be independent.
