I WASN'T THERE
31 October 2010
There was a happening in Washington, D.C. today too...but I missed it. My friend Lynn Schimmel (from the days when I worked at Women's Health) was there and from the look of her photo, it seems she got pretty close to the stage.
Shelly and Ellen were there too, but I don't know how close they got...this was a rare news event where they were not interviewed or photographed!
Blogger Joe.My.God was there, sort of, but apparently the metro was such a nightmare...
...that his group had to walk "miles" (possibly an exaggeration) and were so far from the Jumbotrons that they missed most of what was going on on stage. So he missed this amazing closing speech by Jon Stewart. I was so moved by it that I watched it with tears streaming down my face.
I hope everyone will spend the 12 minutes it takes to watch it. What does it say about our country that our most eloquent speakers are found on Comedy Central.
Will Rogers would be so proud.
