Bang-Bang Time

My man Jon Stewart of The Daily Show pointed out the irony, but I bet a ton of other folks noticed it too: a news story showing a bunch of celebrities telling Congress how sad they are about the shooting in Connecticut in December, and how awful our gun culture is, and how it has to change…following IMMEDIATELY by an ad for a new action movie, tons of explosions everywhere , and then an actor says, “It’s bang-bang time.”

As the main character in my book The Flying Burgowski would say, “Irony = 1 part Ha- ha + 1 part Ouch.”

Is there anything to do about this, except point out the irony? And keep the conversation going?
