Your Must List Suggestions: Patriot Act edition
Still on my Must List this week: My favorite late night host, Craig Ferguson, delivering the annual comedy monologue at this year’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner. (Yes, I know, this is a week old, but I was on vacation last week. Sue me.) The Scottish-born immigrant does remarkably well before a notoriously tough crowd, mixing pointed humor with heartfelt but unsentimental appreciation of his new American citizenship. Okay, I doubt anyone will ever top Stephen Colbert’s fearless performance at this event two years ago, but Ferguson strikes a tricky balance between paying respect to his hosts and tweaking those who deserve it. (Part 1 is embedded below; watch parts 2 and 3 after the jump.)
In the spirit of the event, it’s time for you to vote for your top three Must List items this week, your favorites among the current crop of movies/TV/music/books/videogames/Internet/etc. Please include your e-mail address so that we may contact you if we decide to include your choice in the magazine. Deadline is Thursday, May 8, at 10 a.m. ET.
