Craig Ferguson Speaks From The Heart


Sherman Oaks, California

Craig Ferguson is a minor miracle. He's a Scot with a brough who hosts the American talker "The Late Late Show" on CBS. He's a 45-year-old fronting a program for collegiate stoners. Ferguson reconceptualized the opening monologue: the rat-a-tat of jokes and gags was dropped in favor of Craig telling a story about why today, like every day, is a great day for America.

One year ago today, Ferguson promised to hold his fire on Britney Spears and other celebrities with apparent substance abuse problems. A recovering alcoholic, Ferguson apologized that his comedic aim had been off and argued that comedy should be used against the powerful, the politicians, the Trumps and the blowhards of the world.

Watch the whole thing. You'll be glad you did.

I admire Greg for the integrity and compassion as he is bringing decency love into situations near and far -that he may transform and heal. Guides appear in many locations. Funny how they sometimes may appear in an unexpected place, but one that will help so many. Love and Light to you Greg, for your beautiful heart!!! Lisa
