Did you happen to catch Craig Ferguson’s final Late Late Show last night? I’ll post the video here in case you didn’t. You don have to watch the whole thing unless you want to — just the first five minutes or so. Who knew Craig could sing?

I think Craig kind of lost his fire for the show over the past year or two. Truthfully, I did too. Our hearts just weren’t in it, I guess.

The sole guest for the finale was Jay Leno. I have to confess that I never saw what others saw in Jay Leno. Some have suggested it was a generational thing. I don’t see how, since he and I are exactly the same age. (Uh oh, I just gave away my age!) I just never saw that much talent in Mr. Leno. There was a lot of ego, but not much talent.

Anyway… good luck, Craig, in wherever your road leads you.

“America’s Resurgence Is Real”

In this week’s address, the President reflected on the significant progress made by this country in 2014, and in the nearly six years since he took office.

This past year has been the strongest for job growth since the 1990s, contributing to the nearly 11 million jobs added by our businesses over a 57-month streak. America is leading the rest of the world, in containing the spread of Ebola, degrading and ultimately destroying ISIL, and addressing the threat posed by climate change. And earlier this week, the President announced the most significant changes to our policy towards Cuba in over 50 years.

America’s resurgence is real, and the President expressed his commitment to working with Congress in the coming year to make sure Americans feel the benefits.
