No Sense of Humor

Not a good omen: the new powers that be last night censored the Daily Show! Only available on Saturday nights, and often pre-empted by the crisis du jour, Jon Stewart's irreverent take on the news is avidly anticipated in this household. So after only a few minutes of this week's show Jon launched into what was looking like a hilarious comment on the small number of tanks involved in this week's coup when the screen went red and inexplicable images of show biz celebrities paraded past with a message that the program would return shortly. Someone had their finger on the Censor button way too long... about ten minutes went by before the program was back on. At least we were allowed our weekly Moment of Zen- krup khun mahk kha.
