This article does a pretty good job of summarizing why I like Jerry Seinfeld’s charmingly-mundane Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee. It’s not calculating in any way: it’s not at all political, which is very nice in this age when most comedians have self-righteously appointed themselves as keepers of correctness. It’s not calculating in any way. It’s not even calculated to be funny. It’s just dudes driving around, talking. When I just want to unplug from the world and stare, it’s perfect fare.
When I see crap like this, I would pay good money to sit down with one of the council members and ask him questions. Nothing confrontational, just straightforward questions that explore how he can be such a hypocrite and live with himself: “The Hollywood Walk of Fame still has a star for Harvey Weinstein and convicted rapist Bill Cosby. But yesterday, the West Hollywood City Council unanimously passed a resolution requesting removal of Donald Trump’s Walk of Fame star.” Via The Loop.
Then again, my alma mater isn’t exactly setting the world on fire with its intellectual honesty: Notre Dame Refuses To Revoke Allegedly Predatory Cardinal McCarrick’s Honorary Degree. But of course, it wouldn’t invite Trump to speak at its graduation ceremony.

Random Blurb from the Notebooks: This world doesn’t need you and God doesn’t need you. Both can use you and both want you. But neither needs you; you are, in this sense, superfluous. That’s just the way it is. But that’s not a bad thing. Always remember this: If that’s just the way it is, then it must be good. God makes all things. Because he is perfect and good, everything he makes must be good. Therefore, if something is a certain way (and assuming it didn’t get to be that way due to sin), then it is good that it is that way.
