Jon Stewart, who may go down as the premiere satirist of his generation (how's that for a member of the cast of Half Baked) kills virtually every night, but he took it to the next level covering the "miracle" evacuation of Air France Flight 358 in Canada.
A miracle is defined in my dictionary as 'a marvelous event manifesting a supernatural act of G-d.' To me, the only thing that was a miracle in that situation was the lightning that hit the plane. That was the act of G-d. If anything, G-d was trying to kill these people. His plan was foiled by the crew's satanic competence. Can't someone take some human credit for a job well done? ... This is not a miracle. If the passengers had died and then, three days later, come back to life, that would be a miracle. Or, for my people...if the flames from the wreckage had burned for 8 days...
Great, great stuff.
