My Kind Of News Show



I get a lot of my news from Jon Stewart on the Daily Show so when a friend got tickets, I jumped at the opportunity to see him live.  I was not disappointed.


Growing up in NYC, I used to go to taping of television game shows all the time.  It was a cheap (free) way to spend an afternoon and see celebrities.  I even got to a dress rehearsal of the Ed Sullivan Show once.  As a child, I got to be on Bozo the Clown and Wonderama.  My own children were on Romper Room.  (I know all you youngsters reading this have no idea what shows I am talking about.)  Not working gives me time again to enjoy the activity I used to love.  It was fun seeing how computers have changed the way these shows are produced. 


Now, to get tickets to see my second love, Stephen Colbert.

I remember some girl cut in front of my brother in line so I shoved her. But then I totally called my brother out on getting "Simon Says" wrong.

And Ms. Molly reprimanded you for that. Then, you and your brother had a fight. You two were not her favorite little romper roomers. I have the tape to prove it too.
