So Stephen Colbert is leaving the Colbert Report in a year to take over for Letterman and that is the saddest thing I can think of at the moment. He’s going to do the show out of character, with a house band, and with boring opening monologues? No Threatdown, no Tip of the Hat Wag of the Finger, no more Report. I’ll enjoy the last year of Colbert but I will deeply miss the wit and humor The Report has given American for almost a decade now.

Lying under a myriad of stars. The sea’s black horizon. He rose and walked out and stood barefoot in the sand and watched the pale surf appear all down the shore and roll and crash and darken again. When he went back to the fire he knelt and smoothed her hair as she slept and said if he were God he would have made the world just so and no different."

"…look at the stars. They are so far away, and their light takes so long to reach us…all we ever see of stars are their old photographs."
