Jon Stewart has meant a lot to me over the past fifteen years or so - especially, clearly all nine years of this blog.
I'm really worried too, because several months ago he took a day or two off for no explained reason and he looked upset - I hope he isn't sick. I was afraid they were going to announce something was wrong with him and I was just starting to forget about that. And now this.
I know it's just a TV show, but I have to admit - I cried when I first heard. I counted on Jon Stewart's sane, comforting presence - more than I even realized. This is like a knife through my heart. Especially since they won't say why he's leaving.
