Sometimes it seems like every standup comedian worth his or her salt just has to do the book thing, and you might feel that yet another warmed-over stage routine is the last thing you need taking up valuable bookshelf space. Jon Stewart’s book will come as an extremely pleasant surprise. He eschews the standard standup patter and instead gives us 18 short comic essays in a variety of styles that recall the prose work of Woody Allen, only with a few more references to genitals. Stewart proves himself a remarkably nimble humorist with a sharp eye for parody, whether he’s writing “A Very Hanson Christmas” or “Adolf Hitler: The Larry King Interview.”
HITLER: …Larry, look, I was a bad guy. No question. I hate that Hitler. The yelling, the finger pointing, I don’t know … I was a very angry guy.
KING: And this … new Hitler?
HITLER: I get up at seven, have half a melon, do the jumble in the morning paper and then let the day take me where it will…. Me!! The inventor of the Blitzkrieg… When you stop having to control everything it’s very freeing.
Stewart is not afraid to flirt with bad taste, in fact, some of the pieces in this collection do for “flirting with bad taste” what Bill Clinton did for “not having sexual relations.” But it’s wonderful to see an edgy comedian taking on the traditionally cozy genre of the humorous essay, creating work that combines the wit of Robert Benchley with the energy and attitude of the best modern standup. Naked Pictures of Famous People proves that Jon Stewart is as comfortable, and accomplished, in front of a word processor as he is in front of an audience. –Simon Leake

Rally to the Flag; Immigrant March:Washington DC

Rally to the Flag; Immigrant March:Washington DC
As controversial immigrant rights demonstrations took place across the USA, calling for an amnesty for ‘illegal immigrants’, I watched one of the largest of them in DC. Hundreds of thousands of immigrants took part some in solidarity with their undocumented compatriots but many were the ‘illegal immigrants’ themselves. Their march passed the White House and the Washington Monument and flooded out on to the Mall. It was moving to see a sea of Star spangled banners mixed with the flags of their original countries, with obvious passion and pride many were taking their first political steps. They had decided : ‘ Not to be invisible anymore’. Many carried banners stating ‘We are all Americans’. I saw a banner: ‘I am an immigrant and a human being’ reminding me of the famous sixties civil rights placards ‘I am a man’. There were immigrants from all over the world from Korea and Lebanon, Afghanistan and Nigeria with their supporters whose grandparents were immigrants from Europe. Overwhelmingly though the marchers were Hispanic from Mexico and El Salvador, Peru, Guatemala, Honduras the Dominican Republic and all of the other Latin American States. America’s openness to immigrants from across the world and its famously porous Southern border makes this place seem the most diverse place on the planet. Clutching the American flag and carrying a sign: ‘We love The United States’ a marcher told me in broken English he loved freedom and wanted only the right to be part of the country he loved and had labored in, and that he wanted to have the right to the ‘pursuit of happiness’ and to pursue ‘the American dream’, the right to become an American citizen after 8 years in the USA illegally.

This image, for me, catches some of the pride and optimism of the march in a generic way. The flag and the Washington Monument icons of the hoped for America. The Star Spangled banner blowing overhead, the sunlight, the flag bearer all combine to create that classic forward to victory spirit. I like the frame of the marchers themselves they are all just about silhouettes making the people generic representatives. Er…… this is worth mentioning…… You need to wear sun glasses while shooting images like this and be careful not to look at the sun to long…..its really not good for your eyesight to stare at the sun.

Furnished Apartment

Furnished Apartment
It had been a while since they’d furnished any apartments. Everything was locked up and peeling, but as I walked around the corner to go through the car overpass to the rooms and parking area in the back I could hear music. There were several old vehicles that looks like they might be being held together with rope and duct tape. A man walked back and forth from one of the rooms to one of the cars; from somewhere inside I could hear a baby crying. I wondered if it were just a stopping point on the way from… Mexico? Guatemala? El Salvador? To… I’m not sure where. Someplace else. Or if this was where they’d landed. Didn’t seem possible. Winslow has really seen better days. And even in better days it must never have been a boomtown. We went to Jerome, which is advertised as Arizona’s most famous ghost town. And it was hoppin’. There were some abandoned buildings, and I guess it ceased to be a formal town at some point in the fifties, but there were people everywhere. Winslow might still have its city charter, but damn, it was a ghost town.
