I agree with Tara Skelton.

I don't see how nude depictions of the Supreme Court is necessary or humorous. I understand where Robert Willits is coming from. Maybe Jon Stewart is a still little antsy about the 2000 election?

I liked the show until the segment yesterday called Canadians a bunch of p*ssies!!!

Actually, it was quite funny - one of the American reporters was talking about roughing up the Canadian and the american asked the canadian what he would do about it and the Canadian replied "I'll write a letter of concern"...hahahaha, so typically Canadian. (or p*ssy in americans' opinions!)

Seems they are now targeting an international audience, but they aren't being very careful with some of the material they present. Expect more to be offended in the future.

Actually the segment in question wasn't making fun of Canadians. It was making fun of American attitudes towards them.

The giveaway was when Ed Helms told the Canadian, "Are you sure you're not American? You're being kind of a dick about this."

That may have been their intention, but I'm sure it pissed some Canadians off.

Quite frankly I think the show would absolutely stink if they had to think every joke through to make sure it didn't offend anyone.

GULFPORT, Miss. - A library board for two south Mississippi counties has reversed a ban on Jon Stewart's best-selling "America (The Book)


The Jackson-George Regional Library System board of trustees said they banned the satirical textbook in eight public libraries last month because they objected to an image of the faces of the U.S. Supreme Court justices superimposed on nine naked bodies.

"I've been a librarian for 40 years and this is the only book I've objected to so strongly that I wouldn't allow it to circulate," Robert Willits, director of the Jackson-George Regional Library System, said after the ban. "We're not an adult bookstore. Our entire collection is open to the entire public," he said.

However, the board met Monday night and by a 5-2 vote lifted the ban. The book will return to the shelves of the eight libraries in the two counties.

"We have come under intense scrutiny by the outside community," said David Ables, board chairman. "As a board, we don't decide for the community whether to read this book or not, but whether to make it available."

Board member David Ogborn of Hurley opposed to lifting the ban.

"I haven't heard anything but a good response by our decision to keep this material out of our libraries," Ogborn said. "Our libraries are not a trash bin for pornographic materials."

The only "porn" I associate w/ Jon Stewart are certain thoughts I may have had about him

John Grisham was on last night. He told John he's been banned several times in Mississippi and it will only make sales go up. That it was a good thing.

You can be funny without referring to Canadians as "pussies", and you can be funny without publishing nude depictions of the Supreme Court.

Wal-Mart has declined to stock the book because of the page, which features the faces of the nine Supreme Court justices superimposed over naked bodies. The facing page has cutouts of the justices' robes, complete with a caption asking readers to "restore their dignity by matching each justice with his or her respective robe."

come on

buy the book

then you can put on their little robes and restore their dignity

You can also be funny with references to Canadian "pussies" and nude Supreme Court Justices. Besides, if you watched that skit, you'd realize that the writers were quite tongue-in-cheek with the Canadian image they were putting forth.
