Week in Review (July 22, 2016)

Jon Stewart’s absence left a void that has yet to be filled.

This fact was only reinforced last night when he returned to lambast politics on late night TV on Stephen Colbert’s Late Show, complete with his swirling pen flourish at the start. It’s brilliant. It’s hilarious. It’s wonderful.

It’s a shame he’s retired.

Here’s what I wrote this week:

“I see you and I see your bullshit.”
– Jon Stewart
“We’re live.”
– Stephen Colbert
