Leonardo"s Notebook by Mattheus Mei

I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.

Heads Up!

Thanks for the heads up goes to Gashwin, for letting us know of this little local tid-bit, fun for Sunday Morning I say!

Here's the full text of the announcement from USC:

October 25, 2007
Colbert to be honored by Mayor Coble Sunday at University’s Horseshoe
Last Sunday morning, he was on “Meet the Press” with Tim Russert. This Sunday, (Oct. 28) he shakes hands with Mayor Bob Coble and brings truthiness to the University of South Carolina.
Native Son Stephen Colbert, who has declared his trans-party candidacy for president of the United States, will be honored by the mayor with the key to the city and a proclamation declaring him South Carolina’s favorite son.
The event will take place at 9 a.m. on the university’s historic Horseshoe and is open to the public.
“’The Colbert Report’ is a hugely popular national TV show, and our goal is to try to get, as best as possible in a satirical environment, a positive image out about Columbia, the Gamecocks, the University of South Carolina and Innovista,” Coble said.
Colbert, a Charleston native who hosts “The Colbert Report” on Comedy Central, announced earlier this month on his show that we was running for president and would campaign only in South Carolina. The announcement coincides with the publication of his book, “I Am America, and So Can You.” In his appearances and on his show, Colbert has talked up South Carolina, especially its barbecue and peaches.
