Jon Stewart on The Gates

Feb 22, 2005

Dave Jilk forwarded me the Jon Stewart segment on The Gates (click on Piles of Sheet). “The Gates will do for New York what the West Wing did for Washington D.C.  Or – what the band Asia did for that continent.” (Stephen Colbert, aka Ted Hitler, Senior Conceptual Art Correspondent.)  Expectedly great stuff.  “I used to think $21 million dollars could be used to achieve something noble – like, um, I don’t know – build a hospital wing.  But The Gates has caused me to recontextualize my notion of what $21 million dollars can be used for – in this case redecorating a bike path.” (Ted Hitler again).
