I just thought it was a very heartfelt speech, and just... wow. Just brings to the forefront a few things that _need_ to be said... I wish the audience wasn't laughing so much throughout it... but sorta unavoidable I guess, since they're all expecting a monologue chock-full of ridiculous one-liners and celebrity jabs...

His talking about his wanting to do a swan dive off Tower Bridge, that part struck home with me... I started welling up a bit (if you need to know why i'll answer it in a pm)

I love CF. There was another really touching monologue when his dad passed. Very human. A guy I'd want to have a beer with. (Except that neither of us drinks anymore...)

I watched Craig Ferguson on Bill Maher's show the other night. He is very entertaining and easy to listen to. I get everything he is saying, but wonder about his career, if he heeds his own advice. Late night TV hosts will stop making fun of celebrities about the same time as the media starts to report on real issues like the war, instead of crap like Anna Nicole and Britney.

The point? They're sellin' what we're buyin.' If you don't sell it, they will probably find somebody else to do it for you. It's the culture as a whole, it's been declining for sometime now and it doesn't look like things are going to change soon.

I'm afraid to see what it will take to get this country to get it's priorities straight again.

That was a great monologue. I had never watched his show before, but I'm going to TIVO it and definitely give it a chance.

I am guilty of having a good chuckle at those pictures of a bald-headed Britney. But while we were talking about it at a family dinner this past weekend, my brother (who is a substance abuse counselor and a recovering addict himself) mentioned that if she doesn't get help soon, she'll probably end up killing herself or ODing. It made me realize how unfunny her situation really is.

although i really dislike his talk show, that was pretty good.

i thought Jon Stewart's first show after 9/11 was pretty emotional. (as first posted by king termite)

Good speech. I'm not an alcoholic, but I've been to lots of AA meetings and the stories told are usually accompanied by laughter. All of them are good stories, just some more animated then others but I guess it depends on the crowd that night...
