I wondered if his new book would address the infamous wheelchair joke.
But what’s really bad is to get pilloried and have it coming, when a joke that made sense in my head turned out to be incomprehensible and awful on the screen. To try to add a joke to a world already too full of jokes, and to do it so ineptly that someone was hurt or insulted — what could be worse than that?
I guess this might be in reference to that.

(I thought this was an excerpt from the book, but it looks like it's actually a stand-alone editorial.)

Colbert did a bit regarding Trebek's possible retirement last night. (2:48 if it's not queued up)

On FB there was a post from a very reliable source and J! Board member that Hulu starting tomorrow will show some J! tournaments from previous seasons in the S29-S31 range.
