Video: 'The Colbert Report' on a Colorado Woman's Peeps Eviction Trial

Can't a woman love her Peeps? So much that she constructs a pyramid of them (accented with plastic grass) and tacks this masterpiece onto her door for all her apartment hallmates to enjoy? Apparently not. Carol Burdick of Boulder, Colorado, was evicted from her home last year for keeping her Peeps decor up two weeks after the holiday. On last night's episode of The Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert covered what has now turned into an eviction case against the Denver-based building management corporation AIMCO. Yes, all this over Peeps. Watch the clip. More

In Videos: Michael Pollan on 'The Colbert Report'

Michael Pollan, author of In Defense of Food, was on The Colbert Report last night. Colbert welcomed him with Sierra Mist soda, which definitely doesn't make Pollan's five-ingredients-or-less rule for virtuous foods. But Pollan politely took a sip and argued that he can still be American while avoiding American cheese (and other synthetic foods). For example, he encourages all parents to go the breast milk route, except we learn, thanks to a Mrs. Pollan in the audience, that he was not breast fed himself! Scandal.
