Arts Are Good

I have time to either send an e-mail to Chili or to blog for the day. So, please all forgive me, I'm not going to send her an e-mail, I'll tell you all what I was going to tell her. Craig Ferguson spent an entire show talking with Archbishop Desmond Tutu the other night. I can't find a video of the whole thing but here's a link to parts of it. If anyone can find the whole deal, though, it would be worth it because Craig's monologue and intro are as interesting and worthy as the interview with Father Tutu. It's glorious, all of it, and it illustrates for me how powerful artists can be and how important it is to support the arts because they are part and parcel of the learning process that gains us social, political and personal change. Enjoy!



  1. Ooooh, can't wait to see this episode of Craiggles. I save them up all week and watch on the weekends.

  2. I think I love both of them just a little bit more now...

  3. Don't you just, though? I just watched it again with Kath & Alex. They are just the most lovely pair and their conversation was glorious!
