I don't know anything about comedian Tracy Morgan but I just finished watching his interview on the Today Show. It was hard to watch. The phrase "raw emotion" comes to mind. Normally I would have turned off the show. Watching someone else's misery as a form of entertainment doesn't suit me. But I watched this time and I am glad that I did. I am still opposed to watching the suffering of others in order to somehow gain something (entertainment, feeling better about your own situation) or to endorse a practice (such as exploiting people for ratings on TV) but somehow I feel that it was important to hear this man's story. He was just so very honest and so very basic about what must be a complex set of emotions. If that isn't a human-to-human experience I don't know what is. I will never meet this guy of course but it doesn't matter. I was a witness to the everyday miracle of the human condition.
