The non-lion Aslan is just as impressive
I have to thank Jon Stewart for introducing me to my new crush: religious scholar/news analyst Reza Aslan. After hearing him discuss the complex web that is the Middle East at this moment in time, I wanted to applaud. His take on the multi-faceted mess was logical, practical and slightly hopeful. The world could use more Rezas. If you want to see his interview on The Daily Show, here is Part 1 and Part 2.
On a lighter note, I really enjoyed Stephen Colbert's "teaser" line in his The Colbert Report show intro on Monday night:
“Can being a Nielsen Family kill you? Watch the entire show to find out.”
