Memorial Day became a three-day weekend in 1968.
Today on StandUP!
Before we packed up the cats and headed off to start summer (unofficially), we performed the dramatic conclusion to Criminal Justice Week, with guest star Tina Winsett!
CNN Politics’ Executive Editor, Mark Preston, gave us the lowdown on D.C. politics and the how the presidential race is shaping up.
Bear Grylls is an adventurer, author, and host of the seminal adventure/reality series “Man vs. Wild.” Bear joined us today to promote his new NBC series “The Island,” where normal guys are left to fend for themselves in a tropical paradise. If it were the staff of this show left on that island, I predict that much of the series would involve Pete plotting to kill and eat us.
Then, we were joined once again by Stanley Richards, whose journey from prison to SVP of Fortune Society is both inspiring and an effective example of the type of prison and criminal justice reform his group advocates.
Finally, we said goodbye to Criminal Justice Week with a long visit with former NYPD Commissioner Bernard Kerik, who found himself behind bars in federal prison for 3 years. His time in the system has led him to change his view on the prison system and with his new book, “From Jailer to Jailed,” he hopes to make criminal justice reform a major issue in the 2016 Presidential Election.
Now, if you excuse me I am going to have
one three more slices of Tina Winsett’s delicious brownie cake!
Have a safe and fun Memorial Day Weekend, see you Tuesday!
