a lighter note

taking a break from wishing i had the money to send to haiti, i thought this perceptive screed on nbc’s conan/leno fiasco was spot on, despite the fact that i rarely spend more than a few seconds watching any talk show

It’s not just the Facebook-addicted hoi polloi who have an opinion – comedians themselves have thrown their support behind Conan O’Brien in his increasingly bitter, wildly amusing feud with NBC. Comedy Central star Michael Ian Black sent out the tweet that “One bright spot on this terrible day is seeing everybody come together and agreeing that Leno sucks.” And stand-up comic and “Ratatouille” star Patton Oswalt recently discussed the loathing his “comedian friends” have for Leno, calling him “passive aggressively mean” and comparing the late-night host to none other than Richard Nixon.

just seems like a no-brainer.
