This recollection corresponds to an image that was once broadcast on the Daily Show, of Jon Stewart presenting his writer’s room. The shot was inside a racquetball court, behind a glass wall, the space stuffed with people, hipsters mostly, cheek to jowl, practically climbing over each other. Let these images serve as illustration and introduction of my point.
