The Big Time?

I was utterly astounded--and of course delighted--to find a mention of The Buddha Diaries, prominently placed in the lead-in to a featured article in the New York Review of Books by Janet Malcolm, "Comedy Central on the Mall." It refers to my entry on November 1st about the Jon Stewart Rally to Restore Sanity, and occupies the first two paragraphs of the article. Reading the whole piece, I regretted only that Malcolm had not read the follow-up article I wrote on 11/11, after seeing a recorded version of what took place onstage--a disappointing affair, I thought. Still, wonderful to find so prominent a mention of the blog. I hope you'll help me celebrate by forwarding the link to others who might be interested. I would perhaps not have stumbled across this without a tip from my friend and fellow blogger, Bill Harryman, at Integral Options Cafe. My thanks to him!

here's your 15 minutes, Peter.....

Did you see the Maddow interview with Stewart? He still insists on the equivalency of right and left, FOX and MSNBC.

Your account of the rally is the first I've read, and it sounds dismal. I would have been pissed if I couldn't see or hear anything. Too bad it wasn't better organized. A good idea, but....
