Jon Stewart retiring from the Daily Show

Jon Stewart announced that he will be leaving the Daily Show later this year. Considering how influential he's been on my personal political beliefs, I'm really going to miss him. I've watched his show almost every day for the past six years and it's unlike anything else on television.

Except for those of us without HBO...you'd think with all the money my university had (University of Oregon), we'd get free HBO in the dorms but nope.

I'm sure it was just a small part of the ever-increasing "fees" they charge.

Plus, you're Canadian, right? Wouldn't it be just like the American education system to provide free television while charging arms, legs, and first born children for the actual education portion?

I got HBO in college but I also went to the most expensive public university in America so it's sort of the least they could have done.

I know the feeling. At the time I was there, Dalhousie was the most expensive university (tuition-wise, anyways) in Canada.

We could get free internet in all the academic and student union buildings, and in the lobby of the dorm as well. To get access in our rooms we had to pay an extra fee, which of course everyone paid because it was 2006 and having to go to the lobby just to check your e-mails was stupid. The whole university charged any possible fee they could think up/get away with for anything, though. Things that were included in the cheaper tuition of other universities, we had to pay extra for. That really pissed me off. We also had to maintain our own accounts and deal directly with the cable company just to get so much as basic cable in our rooms.

They changed that policy and gave everybody free access to dorm room wi-fi about a month after I graduated

Free Internet, free cable, free HBO, free gym membership with aquatics, free bus pass, etc.

But I went to a private University so I dropped Hella cash. None of this was actually free.

Thumbs Up

Jon appeared on WWE Monday Night Raw for a segment that was a spoof of the Daily Show. Seth Rollins was the host of the spoof show. Jon was awesome and definitely knows his pro wrestling. Easily one of the best celebrity guest segments in recent history. He was able to go all New Jersey on Rollins and kick him in the balls to escape Rollins and his henchmen. Good stuff!

When a celebrity is a legitimate fan of pro wrestling, they usually hit a home run during their appearances. Seth Green is also a big fan and he's great too. It was just great seeing Jon show up on WWE TV in the first place. Plus his segment came off without a hitch to boot.
