This from Cape Cod Today:
"The Daily Show selected Jason Jones, the correspondent most likely to take his shirt off, to send to the Cape. Brace yourselves for shots of a shirtless Jones sunning himself on a yacht or splashing around on a beach.
Individuals for and against Cape Wind were interviewed. The people for Cape Wind felt more comfortable with the Daily Show camera crew, although they may have been duped. Audra Parker, who is with the anti-Cape Wind Alliance to Protect Nantucket Sound, said of her Daily Show interview: "I wouldn't say it was pleasant.""
Well, I bet it wasn't pleasant Audra. However, I am guessing that some, perhaps many, will find it quite pleasant watching you sweat, evade and squirm as the Daily Show exposes your alliance as the aesthetically narrow-minded, NIMBYist, self-serving, special interest group that it is. Pleasant indeed!
