If you were outside enjoying the fall weather this weekend, and
not holed up in your home watching Comedy Central, you might have
missed the airing of the "Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear," hosted
by the cable channel's fake newscasters/real pundits Jon Stewart and
Stephen Colbert (there was, however, plenty of media coverage.) While the actual
rally was on the National Mall in D.C., many cities held satellite
rallies of their own, including Los Angeles.
