Merciful God, bless John Oliver. He gambled his career on the belief that a significant number of people in the U.S. would tune in for a lecture once a week. A witty lecture, yes, but fundamentally didactic. He makes us laugh and offers us the knowledge necessary to participate in shaping our shared world. Please grant this quirky person a large classroom of eager learners. Inspire and guide him. Continue to give him clear vision and fierce hope. And while You're at it, please give the rest of us enough bandwidth to protect net neutrality. Amen.
