Like little stars.
On Thursday night’s “Daily Show,” Jon Stewart took time to follow up on the goings on of renegade-rancher Cliven Bundy. Bundy, who is the grazing-fee-denier darling of Fox News, also surfaced “in a surprising twist” as a blatant and disgusting racist. In a video he voiced something he’s often wondered: Are African-Americans “better off as slaves, picking cotton and having a family life and doing things, or are they better off under government subsidy?”
Jon Stewart helpfully pointed out that history has already answered that question. “They’re better off now than they were as slaves, because anybody would be better off than as a slave. What the f–?!’” Stewart exasperatedly explained.
Stewart then called out a certain news station (that he did not name after a week of sparring with Sean Hannity) for giving the racist, renegade rancher airtime to proclaim he’s a bit like the founding fathers of America. “Yes, a bit like the Founding Fathers,” Stewart counters. “But the bit of you that’s like our Founding Fathers, is the bit of them that we’re ashamed of.”

World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
