Just Like Indiana!

For lack of anything better to post about this evening, I thought I would make mention of something worth watching on TV. The Daily Show this week is showing segments each night that were produced in Iraq (yes, really Iraq) by correspondent Rob Riggle (a major in the Marine Corps Reserve), writer Kevin Bleyer and field producer Glenn Clements. The three visited recently in support of a USO sketch comedy tour known as "Operation Feel the Heat" and created segments for use on the show with handheld cameras. Tonight's segment referenced the assertion by Indiana representative Mike Pence (R) several months ago that walking in Baghdad was just like walking "in a market in Indiana". Riggle set out to compare the troops' experiences in Iraq with the finer parts of The Hoosier State.

Sometimes this show is the only reason I turn the TV on the whole week.
