Item: Short Jewish New York Comedian to Host Oscars

No, Billy Crystal isn't back. This year's host is none other than Jon Stewart.
The producer of the Oscars show said Stewart has many of the qualities of previous hosts.

"Jon is the epitome of a perfect host -- smart, engaging, irreverent and funny,'' producer Gil Cates said.

I couldn't be happier about this development if I was Jude Law. Damn you, March 5 for your incorrigible not-here-nowness! How relentlessly you tease us, o cruel, toyful Lord.

Yeah, this should be a good one.

I can't get enough of Jon Stewart.
The half-hour just whizzes by and you're left groping at your wetted pants from laughing.
Good thing Stephen Colbert takes over an makes it a full hour.
With Stewart hosting, Hollywood's
annual schmooze and snooze may well turn into (Hell, Stewart would say it!) laughter about booze and cooze.
