[Does Glenn Beck merit attention? The Glenn Beck who
imagines himself as the successor to Martin Luther
King, or maybe a messiah? He's just crazy, right?
Crazy, yes, but perhaps more than 'just.' Crazy is
different when it has the adulation of a right-wing
movement adrift from reality, a primetime home on a TV
network, a nationwide radio show and a cultlike
following. That's why Glenn Beck merits attention. And
yet, to take his semi-madness seriously also somehow
misses the point. Court jesters to the rescue: in
today's videos, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert show
that zaniness may be best way to take the measure of
crazy, Glenn Beck style. -- video moderator.]

I Have a Scheme

Glenn Beck wants to reclaim the civil rights movement
on the anniversary of Martin Luther King's "I Have a
Dream" speech.

Glenn-Livid

Besides the date, the location, the march and the
threat of assassination, Glenn Beck's rally has nothing
to do with Martin Luther King Jr.

You've Got to Be Carefully Taught

[Thank to Joyce Kohnlein -- vm] Here's Matthew Morrison
before he became a TV star in "Glee" singing "You've
Got To Be Carefully Taught" from the Lincoln Center
revival of Rodgers and Hammerstein's South Pacific. PBS
is going to air the show live in August but it is still
unclear whether Morrison will be reprising his role as
Lieut. Cable. He should, even if he has to accept PBS
scale, because a permanent record of his performance
would be invaluable to his career and resume long after
"Glee" is forgotten.

Video of Trapped Chilean Miners

Thirty three men trapped in a Chile mine appear hopeful
that they'll get out alive in new video released by
Chile's Ministry of Mining.
