About Us
A penny for your thoughts indeed. Around here that would be a raise.

What makes a good blog? I think thematic consistency, a little exhibitionism, and honest writing. I can promise you the last one.

Most of my posts seem to be about music or politics. Some of them are funny. But all of them would love to hear a comment from you.

Oh-- and please welcome God to the APW team. We're thrilled and humbled to serve as His earthly vessel.

My Photo
Location: NYC

I was born at a relatively young age. Growing up consumed the better part of my childhood. As a young man I chased a lot of girls. But they kept getting away. Then I got older and even slower, so I got married. I've lived in New York City almost since before I moved here. I summer in Manhattan, which is like New York City, but with more humidity.

Here's me, without baby, thinking big thoughts. (Actually, what I'm thinking is, "Hey, these aren't Pringles!") I think I look better with baby.

All the Fake News That Fits...
Thursday, November 03, 2005

The Daily Show With Jon Stewart just gets better and better. Last night’s program, with the Mike Wallace interview, was a brilliant piece of biting comedy that included swipes at both parties (although more, naturally, at the one in power). Stewart is great because he says out loud, on TV, the things the rest of us are thinking. He makes it wicked funny. And he provides a safety valve that lets us kow at the end of the day that no, we are not crazy. things really are that absurd.

This piece was the lead story last night. Check it out. I don’t care which ideological side you are on, it is drop-dead hysterical, and oh yeah, the most spot-on coverage that anyone had all day.

For an increasing number of young people, Jon Stewart is the most trusted name in news. Way more 18-34 year-olds watch The Daily Show than read, say, the New York Times or Wall Street Journal. Think about the impact on the national debate over time as generations grow up on the Daily Show and the Colbert Report, rather than on traditional news sources.

Here at APW, we're unabashed fans.
