Moment of Zen: Anderson Cooper reminisces about when he met Michael Jackson at Studio 54 when he was 10 years old.
Jon Stewart: I'm not sure how I feel about this. In the past two weeks we've had the stirring pro-democratic revolution in Iran and a military junta seizing control in Central America. And our CIA has seemingly had nothing to do with either! Or are they just that good?
Reuters' Fred Katayama (news clip): The CIA apparently wants you! The spy agency is starting advertising jobs to recruit investment bankers, top analysts, and hedge fund hotshots.
Jon Stewart: Okay, apparently they're not that good. Why would the CIA want the investment guys? The CIA specializes in taking calm stable countries and causing them to collapse. Why would they want people who ran ... Brilliant!
Jon Stewart: What about a musician's brain? Is that different than ... I cannot play music or sing. Would my brain reflect that?

Dr. Oliver Sacks: Yeah, it could be candy, it could be drugs, it could be Bach, it could be all kinds of ...those are the rewards centers of the brain.
Jon Stewart: What do you like more?
Dr. Oliver Sacks: I like them all together.
Jon Stewart: Not a good weekend, uhm, folks. I'm not gonna lie to you. Apparently everyone who ever meant anything to anyone passed away this weekend. Fortunately, a shame, ... (acknowledges a burst of applause) yeah. We are apparently ... alone. Left with no cultural touchstones and only questions. Can I complain about the media overload? Of course. Is it unusual to see a story where the analysis, an insight of Quincy Jones is given equal weight to that of Corey Feldman? Yes.
