Volume 4: Issue 1
**QUICK WORD TO THE MEMBERS:**
What a week it has been!
I'm sorry that school has kept me from getting online to respond to your emails and to be making a fabulous Newsletter, and also the fact that the Newsletter is late .... sorry, sorry, I've already held my hand over fire, beaten myself, and have faced the humiliation that is not sending out the Newsletter on time in the first place. My apologies. The first few weeks are always the hardest for back to school, anyway.
Another delima concerning the amount of homework + the lack of time after school + having three damn quizzes at the end of the first week = no time for Daily Show or much time for the JSEB. The Daily Show has been on vacation for two weeks, so that gives a little time for me not to have to be glued to the TV at 7PM every night, and I'm sure many others feel that way.
I have more to say about that in my "Daily Show" section.
But first, the web page (ha-ha yes i DID get a peak!) is the greatest Jon Stewart site you have ever seen! Biased? Yes, but that didn't affect the amazement I felt when I saw it! Now, many of you members have sites, and most of them are fabulous, but the JSEB site is shared by ALL of us, because of your support. It will be up, soon.
Join the countdown on the old JSEB page: http://altern.org/jseb/index.html
Don't forget to recruit new members and spread the word about the JSEB as much as possible! We are already a thriving club, but we were thinking about asking to be .... well.... I can't let that secret go right now, but when the time comes, you'll be glad of your JSEB membership like never before!
I hope that everyone who has started school is enjoying it - I am, even though I am not having as much time as I would like to to spend on the Newsletter, and my apologies to you on that! I WILL make it up to you - I promise!! I've tried to be a crusader at my new prep school, where unlike my old prep school, no one knows my devotion to the Daily Show and Jon. I tried to bring it up once, but they just didn't understand it, didn't know him, and hadn't ever heard of or cared about the Daily. Not that they said it like that, it's just that my friends (the like er totally the like WAY ditsy er like popular crowd hee-hee. Me: *sigh*) tried to think if they had ever heard of TDS/Jon, and I thought they might hurt themselves thinking too hard, you know. I urge you not to vandalize your books in the name of Jon .... though that is blatant hypocrisy because I already have graced my books with "TDS" and "Smapdi". Anyway, I would like to propose a new section to the newsletter for you the members to participate in. Details will be found below.
Now get ready for the (come on, you see it coming!) greatest Jon devoted Newsletter on the Internet.....ever:
**A WORD FROM OUR PRESIDENT:**

*There's a picture of Jon in the new US magazine (it has thecast of Friends on the cover). It's towards the end. Very cute.* at Hollywood Video there's a catalogue of when movies are going to be availableto rent and it says that Big Daddy will be available on November 2. Of course, it's not definite until it actually comes out, but that's what it says. :)
*JSEB members unite!! (oh christ that sounded really dorky..)anyhoo, e- mail this site, www.tv-now.com, and ask them to add Jon to their celebrity TV schedule list.
(Allison says: Thank you to all of the members who sent in input - keep it coming!)
Sure, Jon appears places on TV, in movies, ect. But where do you see his influence, or the influence of the Daily Show in your everyday lives? Email me, Lanark1440@aol.com if you have any "sightings" no matter how oddly symbolic or bizarre they may seem. This can also include what you have done to promote Jon or TDS - mostly offline, but if you emailed a thousand people you know, you could say that. Be honest, though, you good people you. I'll give my two to start off with:
*On the way to school last week, I was stuck behind one of those huge Titanic sized Suburbans.......which wasn't moving, and I couldn't get around them. So, I happened to glance at the license plate, which read "TDS". Now of course, TDS could have been initials, or anything, but I wondered about the person inside the car.....and ALMOST approached their window to inquire about it ... but didn't. Who knows? AND, they were going to my school, which made me wonder....* Also, 2 or 3 times a week, the whole upper school has to go to the auditorium during our break to hear a senior speech. Friday's senior speech was "Creationism vs. Evolution", and the second topic: "Why does Allison find this funny?" Of course, it wasn't as clear as Jon's version, an without the empahsis he put into it, which is what I was (of course) thinking of, but since the microphone was turned off, and the person could not speak very loudly, I reminisced of great Daily Shows gone by.
**The Daily Show:**
The Daily Show is having reruns for the next two weeks. Many people speculated that this could be the sign that Jon's female followers have been dreading - his marriage to Tracey (which, IMHO is never going to happen). Anyway, my own theory is that this is the first major break that Jon has had since he tooks over TDS, and I also hear about him working on a movie, so maybe he is filming; and also, this is just a vacation for the whole Daily Show crew. I personally thought the the "Daily Show Summer Spectacular" was the greatest Daily Show ...ever. Well, not THE greatest, but certainly one of! It was a classic, and despite what Jon says - he CAN act (if anyone continued watching through the credits). It was a tremendous episode. I was kind of hoping that they would show reruns from the very first two weeks that Jon was on TDS, instead of just the episodes from August. I personally didn't start watching Jon on TDS while I mourned the loss of Craig (who I couldn't care less about, now) until, seriously, May. I'm sure that all of us would like to see the old ones to see how much Jon (and his hair) have improved.Oh well - Keep watching the Daily - even though they ARE reruns - just MUTE it for the stale jokes you uhave heard 54 times, and just watch Jon - just the expressions will make you laugh.That's all for this week - Hope you had a great Labor Day weekend! Talk to you all soon,
VP of the JSEB
