On last night's "Daily Show with Jon Stewart," host Jon Stewart called out the major television news outlets for their recent coverage of a J. Crew ad that features Jenna Lyons, the fashion house's Technical Director with her son and his pink toenails.

Told once again that her son’s medical prognosis is dire, the besieged mom, played by Cher, retorts, “If I’d dug his grave every time one of you geniuses told me he was gonna die, I’d be eating [expletive] chop suey in China by now!”

When I heard about Southern Voice closing, like many people, I was devastated. I felt as if someone close to me had died; like a friend I loved but with whom I had lost touch. Even though I did not know much about what my friend had been doing or feeling in the past decade my feelings still ran deep and strong.
