Stephen Colbert's Fitting Tribute to Maurice Sendak


Maurice Sendak passed away yesterday so last night, Stephen Colbert paid tribute to the author/blurber of his new children's book, I Am a Pole (And So Can You). Colbert aired never before seen portions of his interview with the Sendak, from earlier this year. The video is funny and sad and touching and dark – just like Sendak would've liked or hated or liked to hate.
