I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
I think I'd have more respect for beck if he weren't such a lazy thinker. I think it's possible to stimulate his audience intellectually without relying on lazy intellectual shortcuts.\
This American Life does it for me every Sunday (and normally, NPR bores me to tears).
I think Beck's show actually demonstrates that there is a hunger in America for intellectual stimulation. The problem is that Beck lacks the background to know how to think critically about sources. He latches on to whatever source stimulates his interest without realizing that some of them are highly biased.

I believe his emotions are genuine, but I find them highly annoying at times. After he had surgery and he posted that overly-emotional video on his website, he was a MESS on the radio. I turned it off because it just wasn't something I wanted to hear.
