Since I happened to be in the neighborhood… After meeting rapper Nas following an appearance on the Colbert Report, I thought I’d stick around to meet the man himself – Stephen Colbert. I think his social and political commentary is both hilarious and spot on and I am thankful that people such as Colbert are not only raising their voices, but also that the masses are starting to take note. As Colbert was heading out for the night, a small mob scene of fans and autograph collectors were waiting by his car and Stephen Colbert, in classic Colbert-mode, told all the fans, “I’ll sign one for each of you. Don’t be greedy.” And he did! When I asked for a photo, he said “do what you need to do” and he posed with me. It was really great to see Colbert in action. Thanks Stephen for being so cool and for also using your voice! You are a huge inspiration to me!
