Another Parallel Universe Inhabitant

This NYT Letter is just odd:

In "Exit, Snarling" (editorial, Jan. 9), you mention that "The Daily Show" is "especially popular with young people."

I am 83 and make sure to stay up to 11 p.m. to hear my buddy Jon Stewart and his talented friends.

First of all, I doubt that Jon Stewart is your "buddy," but I'll let that slide.

He not only is a breath of fresh air but also makes me laugh out loud.

That's kinda his job.

We surely need more of that in this "scary" world President Bush has dumped us in so he can stay in power.

Why the quotes around "scary?" Is this author making a mockery of her own beliefs? In any case, the second half of this sentence is a bit ridiculous. Does this woman seriously think Bush is some sort of power-hungry despot whose only concern is staying in the White House and oppressing The Peopleā„¢? It never seems to occur to some liberals that maybe, just maybe, a lot of Americans agree with the president.

It is sad that we have to go to this "fake news" show to get the truth.

And there, ladies and gentlemen, is the root of the problem. If you believe everything you see on The Daily Show to be "the truth," you have some freakin' issues. Although Jon Stewart is probably more credible than CBS.

I'm even more amazed by her belief that this "scary" world was somehow created by Bush. Evidently, she's one of those who thinks 9/11 was perpetrated by our own government, rather than a bunch of Muslim fanatics.
