Jon Stewart is going off on the news reporters calling the Air France crash "The Miracle of Flight 358", saying it's not a miracle nobody died - it's the result of highly competent, trained individuals. A miracle, he said, would be if all the passengers died then came back to life three days later; or if the jet burned for eight days...

Thought you'd like to know. :)

I share your high regard for "The Daily Show", despite it being concentrated into "The Weekly Daily Show" on (and mainly off) SBS in Oz. Funny, funny funny stuff.

Thinking about it, the coffee offered was probably the horrible instant crap you wouldn't use to kill a brown dog. Tea's the ticket. Strong and sweet.
