We are all anxious and mad. We need jesters and jesters need applause, both as an artist — it feeds their talent- and as a human being -it feeds their souls. You step forward on the stage and take the risk of failure, of scorn or worse. Entertainment is dangerous for the entertainer. I admire not only the talent for satire, I admire the courage of the satirist.
You are a rope-walking clown, Steven. I look up in anxious admiration.
