Jon Stewart and me.
Three hundred and sixty-six days ago, I woke up to an email from my sister-in-law in Los Angeles — and several other friends and readers — whose mouths had dropped open when they saw a picture of this blog in a hilarious segment of "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart." I've never figured out exactly how the show's producers came across this site in their quest for easy-to-parody lefties — Eschaton and I were the segment's two featured liberals — but now that last week's episode of "The Colbert Report" featured a pitch-perfect send-up of Unitarian Universalism [Windows MediaPlayer req'd], I've decided that someone in the Jon Stewart empire simply must have UU connections. Only an insider could know all the subtleties of our advanced metaphysics. Keep up the good work, Top Secret Agent Waldo! But why didn't you offer me tickets to the Academy Awards?
