    "The forms have been filled out, the checks have been written," he said.

    Stewart and Colbert have submitted one application for a permit for the Washington Monument grounds on October 30, National Park Service spokesman Bill Line confirmed Friday.

    "A permit is not finalized yet, and they are still working through a resolution as for any event," Line added.
    With all the talks about rallies and marches, this made me laugh hysterically. This practically came out of the left field. I would expect some sort of rally or march would be held sooner or later, but from two comedians?

    Ed Shultz is also having one. Sometime earlyish October, I think. They should get together.

    phoenix13 and I might go. It depends on how lazy we're feeling that day.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    We've reached an age of true political nihilism. More people follow and get their information from comedians and entertainers than from anyone actually involved in the political arena. Of course who can blame people? They have no access to the real political arena so all that remains is entertainment. I guess we'll see whether or not entertainers can actually make a political difference. In the end, at least it will entertain... which trumps bored political impotence, I guess...

    I dont really understand this, what are they marching about? Is it kind of street theatre or spoof?

    It sort of coins with something I seen on the 43things website once in which someone had listed all these social goals like go to a gig, go to an open air concert, go to see stand up and had go to a political rally in the middle of it. Its become a form of entertainment, something like a football match and sports fans.

    whether or not you credit psychoanalysis itself, the fact remains that we all must, to the greatest extent possible, understand one another's minds as our own; the very survival of humanity has always depended on it. - Open Culture
