Jon Stewart is making America a better place. While the country sits on edge, quivering with anticipation as he prepares for his triumphant return to television (hopefully before the election), the Peabody-winning Stewart is off saving animals. Along with his wife, Tracey, Stewart adopted a 20-year-old horse named Lily who was shot, at close-range, by over 100 paintballs, losing an eye. She will require surgery. (Her tormentor, Phillip Price of East Providence, Rhode Island, was convicted Friday in New Holland, Pennsylvania, of animal cruelty.) The Stewarts have an animal sanctuary in Middletown, New Jersey.
