Craig Ferguson On 9/11 . . . .

"drf" and I are big Craig Ferguson fans. Tuesday night's entire Late, Late Show had a 9/11 slant, including a great appearance and interview with Dwight Yoakam - a personal favourite of mine. Also on the show was Gavin de Becker, an analyst on anti-terrorism measures and how effective - or ineffective - they are.

Sometimes Craig's Glasgow, Scotland accent is a bit difficult to understand, but I'm sure you'll be able to handle it. As a bit of history, Craig is also in the process of applying for his US citizenship. (He should have checked with us first!)

Here's his opening monologue which is both touching and humourus:

(Note his comments about not losing our civil liberties and freedoms about halfway into the clip.)

If you haven't read Craig's book Between the Bridge and the River, check it out. I found it to be an excellent first novel . . . .
