    i really like the show. but was that ending what i thought it was? a fireworks display in such bad taste that the mayor called to stop it -- because it was such a 9/11 reminder?

    or have i had one too many heinekens tonight?

    I laughed a great deal, but I am evil.

    I thought it was hilarious. It takes real balls to do that, and to have a side plot that relies on a young page as "gay bait."

    I think it was designed to highlight the absurdity that anyone would launch fireworks in midtown Manhattan without any advance notice, or without securing permits.

    A <i>three hour</i> fireworks show?

    Only arrogant, self-absorbed, totally insensitive network TV suits would authorize that without even contemplating the possible real-life repercussions.

    Had they just shown the cowboy hat, any sense of being offended would have been blown away by pure hilarity!

    The episode was awesome. I definitely rank this show.

    One nitpick...I was watching The Office, and they had a commercial for 30 Rock. It had Fey's character, with words written across the screen: "Professionally gifted" and "Romantically challenged."

    Only it said ROMATICALLY. Big and in all caps, I think. Kills me. Does no one LOOK at these things before they air??

    guess i'm still sensitive about anything that seems to make light of 9/11. 35 folks from my town perished. sorry.
