Let’s begin by saying that I never dreamed I would be writing about myself and Al Sharpton in the same sentence. I was so excited about sitting down with Rev. Sharpton that I quite likely would have cancelled surgery to do so.

Here, on the June 29th episode of “The Ed Show,” Sharpton is filling in as guest host, and we talk about Lindsay Lohan virtually being a puppet for any advertiser willing to pay her for her tweets. (My apologies to puppets… and to an extent Lindsay Lohan, whom I try not to judge but really needs to cut back on the tweeting for cash.)

The segment aired at about 10:50 pm … with nearly an hour to go before my birthday. How cool that Sharpton was the first to me wish me a happy one!
