    Barry, thank you for your appreciation of John Oliver. It is so refreshing to watch (and read) a financial advisor that can debunk economic (the market for US treasuries will dry up raising interest rates through the roof), political (the US must intervene in the Ukraine), and business journalism (screaming teabaggers that shout over others is entertaining) myths while appreciating the that Oliver’s show has as much wisdom as it does humor. Alas, your readers don’t seem to be showing the same appreciation for John’s show as you and me. Is there a Reality Gap (a “false consciousness” where even smart people like your readers disbelieve the threat of the Wealth Gap) or does the concept of talking about a Wealth Gap,even in an anonymous thread, really make people nervous?
