Jon Stewart to Boston: Thank You For Inspiring, Solidifying Belief in Humanity

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Jon Stewart and The Daily Show returned Tuesday with a cathartic statement on the Boston tragedy - one Patton Oswalt would no doubt appreciate.

Stewart didn’t delve too deeply into the Boston Marathon bombings, but opened with a heartfelt tribute to a city often positioned as New York’s chief rival.

“I’m just going to say this to Boston: Thank you."

"Thank you for once again in the face of inhumanity inspiring and solidifying my belief in humanity and the people of this country," he went on.

"New Yorkers and Boston obviously have kind of a little bit of a competition, often times the two cities accusing each other of various levels of suckitude.

"But it is situations like this that we realize that is it clearly a sibling rivalry and that we are your brothers and sisters in this type of event.”

Last night's Yankee Stadium "Sweet Caroline" rendition certainly attests.
