Vigilance Returns Tuesday Playlist

So last night was the broadcast debut of local hero Rachel Maddow's television program on MSNBC. And as fascinating as that occasion was, it was made that much better in the last three minutes with the triumphant return of Kent Jones. If you ask me, which you didn't, Mister Jones added a humor and chemistry to Ms. Maddow's radio show that made it stand far above the more repetitive and pedantic Air America offerings. And I for one am grateful she brought him back in.

He looked a little klunky making the transition to being live and on camera, and didn't get to offer up a trademark "The Boston Red Sox Crispus Attucks'ed the Texas Rangers 7 to 2, and the Seattle Mariners Purple Hazed the New York Yankees 5 to 2". But he did get in a serviceable joke at the expense of Michael Phelps and Lance Armstrong, so he should gradually get caught up on the events that have transpired since he was summarily shitcanned by radio management at the end of 2007.

And, it looks like the show segments will be available the next morning at rachel.msnbc.com, so we got that going for us (assuming MSNBC doesn't just go and replace everybody with "Uncle" Pat Buchanan through the end of the 2008 political campaign!)
