Virginia, your little friends are wrong. They have been affected by the scepticism of a sceptical age. They do not believe except they see. They think that nothing can be which is not comprehensible by their little minds. All minds, Virginia, whether they be men’s or children’s are little. In this great universe of ours man is a mere insect, an ant, in his intellect, as compared with the boundless world about him, as measured by the intelligence capable of grasping the whole of truth and knowledge.
Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.
– As reported in The New York Sun, September 21, 1987 by Francis P. Church
While these show will be without writers (until the end of the writers strike) it is the opinion of this publication Mr. Colbert and Mr. Stewart have made the best decision for their staffs, maintaining the philosophy that the show must go on.
It is hard enough to wade through the jungle of politics without having the necessary humor to alleviate the pain of it all. Although the shows will remain without writers until the end of the writers strike, both men will surely persevere and America will be better because of their public service to us all. While it is hard to continue, we’re sure, Bogopolis.com is greatful that those readers of Bogopolis.com (who work in support roles of these shows) will feel blessed over the Holiday period that there jobs have been secured by two upstanding journalists (and yes, we do have viewers that work for the shows…).
The staff of Bogopolis.com extends best wishes to both men and suggests that if they find operating two shows by themselves hard – we suggest a combined hour of tag team political reporting and commentary on a joint venture.
A Christmas miracle, indeed – “Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Clause.”
