    Not everyone who uses a wheel chair can't stand or walk, sometimes they just cant do so reliably. And I HATE IT when people try to use Wheelchairs to garner sympathy, they affect everyone who actually needs to use them.

    PLEASE don't (even for the funny) push the idea that people in wheelchairs can never stand. Lots of truly disabled people are able to stand for short periods at need, as long as they have the chair to collapse back into afterwards. The issue is that able-bodied people THEN try to claim they therefore have no need of the chair - or the disabled parking place - at all.

    Remember when in high school we learned how math was going to be useful one day? And now 19-24 years plus another sentence of a certain amount of years equals 7 years in prison? What happened to math? If you have one body how can you serve two sentences at the same time?

    Love the show. Just a quick note though -- it is ableist to make jokes about a person in a wheelchair being miraculously cured if they stand up. More than 80% of people who use wheelchairs are capable of standing and walking, but use wheelchairs to improve overall mobility.

    this take by "drangus": _"He messes up the line and says either f**k or s**t."_ That seemed obvious, but may be helpful for clarification. (I'm not a lip reader, but seems it was the second four-letter-word.)

    Not all people in wheelchairs are unable to walk, you know.
    Some can stand.
    Some can stand, but only for certain period of time because of the immense amount of strain it takes, and they would rather use a chair than use crutches/braces/canes because, again, of the amount of strain.
    It doesn't make them any less "wheelchair worthy" or mean they are "pretending" to need one.

    As a Canadian it's always fun to see Americans trying to get into it. Canada has been sold out for so long,
    to Americans first, it took the rest of the world banning these aircraft before Canada decided to go along.
    If our current political regime wasn't already deep in criminal controversy, they probably would have just
    kept doing what Americans said. I hope this less than efficient aircraft re-design and the fraudulent efforts
    to cover it up become the news, not just political posturing.

    From 8:47 on -- It's a delightfully nostalgic revisit to Stephen's circa 2003 epic thriller-mystery as told through the eyes, thoughts, and words of a whimsical, yet oblivious investigative journalist -- "Wigfield." As succinctly, yet praisingly, put by one of the critics feeling compelled enough to say something for the back cover -- a person going by the apparent pseudonym, "Jon Stewart," -- "To me, WIGFIELD is a deeply funny, refreshingly original book, but to be fair, it is the first book I've ever read." Well, Mr. Stewart (if that is your real name), you are one step ahead of me as I have yet to finish my copy due to the scratching and other blemishes I need to remove from disc -- er, uh, Chapter -- three, which resulted from my copy inadvertently tumbling out of my car as I was hurrying off to work one morning. I have the audio version in CD format and, as there are no versions available in print, either in paper or electronic formats, I must take it upon myself as taught through example by the book's hero, Russell Hokes, to conclude that the only logical conclusion is that the publisher must have started with their initial push in 2003 as a massive CD-only campaign seeing the digital era that we were embarking into in 2003 and having the wise foresight to know that soon, no one would be reading print media any more. After receiving such a successful return from this initial push, the publisher must have taken 100% of the return and done the only logical thing, which was to re-invest it back into the only media form that proved successful for this book -- audio, of course -- and produced a second batch of CDs. In their infinite wisdom, the publisher could see that print form was, at this point, truly unnecessary. "Books begone! Onward and upward! We are in the dawning of a new era -- the digital media era!," they assumedly proclaimed. Unfortunately for them, their infinite wisdom, although infinite, lacking the customary bounds of space and time, would soon prove to have limits moreso than boundaries. To use a mathematical term, "finite." Their infinite wisdom would prove to be finite, indeed. Who could have foreseen in 2003 that a small hand-held device known as the "Kindle" was on the rise; worse yet, it's more ubiquitous successor, the "smart phone?" Indeed, the people of the future -- relative to 2003 -- would learn to, not just read again, but re-learn how much fun it was as a child to read. Yes, reading became popular again. So, what is our takeaway, Reader's Digest, book report summary moral of the story of this delightful book known as "Wigfield?" "Wigfield" is simply and profoundly a publishing anomaly. We can see in the story of the publishing of "Wigfield," the story of a book whose publishing, and initial release, and subsequent marketing campaign, all occurred right on the cusp of a turning point in media history. In the story of the publishing of "Wigfield," we have captured a lightning flash moment in time precisely between the dawning of the new digital era and print media's glory days of yore -- only to be renaissanced back to life with the advent of the Kindle and the smart phone, as discussed above, but that's not the thesis here. So, keeping on-track, the publishing of "Wigfield" happened during a relative moment in our history when we were right between an old age of print media and a new age of digital media - we were in a very very small period of time in which we essentially had NO media. Surely, scholars of the distant future will look back on that tiny moment of time and refer to it as the "Dark Ages Of Media." Of course, we did not know this at the time; notwithstanding, gambles were made regarding the publishing of "Wigfield." All bets were placed in that moment on publishing in audio format only. It could have gone terribly bad, or it could have been incredibly successful. We may never know how it eventually did turn out. As they say, "Hindsight's 20/20." There are so many lessons to be learned. In the case of "Wigfield," you live and you learn. Oh, by the way, if you like Mr. Colbert's somewhat sarcastic, sometimes artificially oblivious sharp wit, then look for "Wigfield" anywhere audiobooks are sold -- I understand that, nowadays, you can find a bunch of them for sale somewhere down in The Amazon. (If you are a fan of "Wigfield" then you recognize the writing style presented above. The long, run-on sentences, apparent contradictions within sentences, overly-eloquent diction in some areas juxtaposed with juvenile [and even faulty] logic, giving the sense of a high school student trying to sound more advanced in his writing than he actually is -- all of this is deliberate farce. The above writing style is not for real, it's just a joke, modeled respectfully after Stephen's own style used in "Wigfield" and prior to that, as the [fictional] oblivious news reporter he played on The Daily Show before he began performing as himself on The Late Show.)

    Please, Manafort got, yet again, another light sentence. The kid that stole a $100 from a laundromat got more time than a traitor, financial pirate, professional liar, and hardened criminal who showed no remorse, and whom the prosecution said wld continue to commit crimes if he was not in jail. Manafort SHLD die in jail for the terrible things he's done, and bc if he's not in jail, he will continue to sell out our country. But, no, he gets a wrist slap, a 7 year sentence, and he'll be out in 3 for good behavior or for his "health" or something.
