'The Daily Show' criticizes criticism of memorial at the UA

Unbelievable. I can't believe the pundits would say such plainly ignorant comments. You're questioning the timing of the memorial service? (And this coming from an Obie, sadly.) The prayer offered by a Pasqua Yaqui Indian who is a native Tucsonan, a family doctor and UA faculty member, and who was given special permission from his tribal elders to share something sacred with the world at a memorial service? (This is not the first time prayers have been offered on campus after a tragedy, either.) That it wasn't a better show? That it was too much of a pep rally? (Ever heard of catharsis?)

Talk about grasping at straws and being completely out of touch with Tucson, Arizona, and any culture that isn't your own.
