Colbert: Amazing, as always

If you didn't see Colbert on Monday, be sure to check out this Huffington Post article that reports the whole story and includes clips of Stephen's interview with Civil Rights legend Andrew Young, who worked to end the Charleston Hospital workers' strike--right here in Charleston--in 1969 with Stephen Colbert's dad.

The article starts by saying,
Stephen Colbert is a great entertainer, but the reason he has resonated so strongly with audiences particularly during this administration is because he has a core of earnestness that deeply reflects a strong moral sense and a desire to educate, illuminate, and do good works.
Damn straight. That's why we've got a whole feminist blog devoted to him.

One of my favorite episodes! It was very moving.

P.S. So glad you ladies are back! I was lonely without you.
