#Hashtag: Jon Stewart to open animal sanctuary


In case you weren’t already aware, Jon Stewart retired his spot as the host of “The Daily Show” earlier this year.

While the public has watched Trevor Noah take over the program, we’ve only seen mere glimpses of Stewart here and there, including small appearances on the new “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” and fighting for Sept. 11 responders’ rights on Capitol Hill.

Well, we just got another glimpse into Stewart’s post-talk show life, as he and his wife Tracey are preparing to open a new animal sanctuary in Middletown, New Jersey.

Here’s hoping these rescued animals find their moment of Zen.

Hi, I’m Jonathan. I graduate this December, majoring in Anthropology, with minors in Creative Writing and Political Science. After that … we’ll see. Maybe graduate school in environmental anthropology. Maybe I’ll finally pursue my old childhood dream of becoming an infomercial host. It’s up in the air. Some of my interests and hobbies include devout sports fanaticism, religious study, and composing country songs that serve to explain the unearthly amount of disdain I have for country music. My band’s called Catfish Hurricane, you should check us out. Well, actually, you shouldn’t. I love writing, which is how I accidentally stumbled into this job. This stumbling into good things is my plan for life in general.
